A Letter from the Chairman

Dear Southern Baptists,

First, the SBC Executive Committee President Search Team would like to thank each of you for all of your prayers and words of encouragement. The task before us is great, but the God that we serve is greater, and He will lead us to the best candidate for the position.

From the beginning, the PST put together a strategy to guide our search process. We began the month of March with a call to prayer, asking you to join us in praying for our Convention, ourselves and our next leader, knowing that the prayers of the righteous have much power (James 5:16). Next, we sought your input by making a survey available to our entire SBC family (Proverbs 11:14). We heard from laity and leaders about the type of person you thought to be best suited for this position. We then believed it wise to await the release of the Sexual Abuse Task Force report, so that any candidate would be aware of the information in the report before applying for the position. And finally, we waited to hear from the messengers in Anaheim, discerning whether the messengers would add to, or subtract from, the responsibilities of the next SBC Executive Committee President.

And now, having sought the Lord, sought your input and heard from the messengers, we are ready to receive recommendations for the position of SBC Executive Committee president & CEO. We will receive recommendations until Friday, August 26, 2022. May the Lord send us a leader after His own heart (Jeremiah 3:15).
