Southern Baptist Convention

WHEREAS, Christian education is generally recognized by Baptists as a pressing need at this time of religious, social and economic turmoil, and

WHEREAS, Schools and colleges are the sources from which the majority of our leaders come, and

WHEREAS, Schools and colleges require the financial and student support of Baptists in order that they may render the kind and amount of service they should render.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That pastors be requested to preach on Christian education on a day or days set apart and designated as Christian Education Day, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That Baptists throughout the South be urged to acquaint themselves with the abundant educational opportunities afforded in our Baptist schools and colleges and to assist in turning Baptist students to them that the future for Christian education and Christian democracy, even Christian civilization itself, may be guarded with jealous care.
