Navigating the SBC is a resource designed to provide pastors, church planters, and lay members with a comprehensive understanding of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). It serves as a valuable apologetic for pastors, simplifying the complexities of the SBC for lay members. This visual guide systematizes the intricate structure, protocol, and heartbeat of the SBC, making it more accessible to individuals at various levels.
Navigating the SBC appeals to the full spectrum of SBC life, not just specific ethnic groups. The resource aims to mobilize the SBC’s ethnic diversity in cooperative ministry and has received positive feedback from pastors, state conventions, and new EC members.
Originally launched at the 2022 SBC Annual Meeting, Navigating the SBC covers foundational, structural, cooperative, beneficial, and practical aspects of navigating the SBC. The goal is to help Southern Baptist churches achieve greater participation, representation, articulation, and celebration across diverse demographics, aligning with the vision of a people from every nation, tribe, people, and language standing before the throne and before the Lamb in heaven. Overall, the resource is designed to enhance understanding of the SBC’s value in advancing the Great Commission.
