RESOLUTION ON USE OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN ORGANIZED BAPTIST LIFE

WHEREAS, Since there is a growing interest of young people in the work of the Southern Baptist Convention in recent years,

Therefore, be it RESOLVED, By the messengers of the Southern Baptist Convention meeting at New Orleans, Louisiana, June 12, 1969, that the Convention and its committees provide opportunities for broader participation by young people in the decision making processes of Southern Baptists at all levels--local, associational, state, and national.

Be it further RESOLVED, That we express the hope that this broader participation will provide a productive outlet for the current critical role of youth within the existing structure of the Convention in that greater understanding may be furthered.
