NASHVILLE (BP)—Baptists must let their voices be heard, said Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd.
Floyd is one of several speakers from across the nation slated to speak Nov. 2 at the "I Stand Sunday" simulcast hosted by Family Research Council and other partners. The event is being held in response to five Houston ministers being issued subpoenas by the city's attorney to turn over sermons and other pastoral communications.
As team strategist for the Women’s Missions and Ministries/Missions Education team, Goodwin crisscrossed the state leading conferences, overnight mission events, camping events and annual meetings—all designed to instill a love for missionaries, missions and missions education into lives of Florida Baptists. She traveled to other nations to support and demonstrate her love for international missionaries.
This past August, the mission whirlwind retired from the Florida Baptist Convention. She served “faithfully” for 21 years, said Craig Culbreth, strategist for the Convention’s Missional Support Group.
HOUSTON (BP)—Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott called on Houston city attorney Dave Feldman Oct. 16 to withdraw subpoenas requiring five pastors to submit their sermons to his office in regard to litigation against a new Houston Equal Rights Ordinance's protections based on sexual orientation.
The pastors are part of a petition effort to repeal the ordinance, known as HERO among its supporters.
Tim Maynard, lead pastor at Fruit Cove Baptist Church in St. Johns County, is nearing the end of his second term as president of the Florida Baptist State Convention. FBW Reporter Nicole Kalil talked to him about what he’s been able to accomplish in that role, what work remains and what lies ahead for Florida Baptists. An edited version of that conversation follows.
NAPLES (FBW)—For most people, maintaining their car is not a life-changing experience.
But for Mary Hickman, her life changed dramatically when she attended the car care clinic sponsored by First Baptist Church of Naples. Before attending the car care clinic in March 2013, Hickman knew about God. She also knew she was not where God wanted her to be. With a mother addicted to crack cocaine and other family members who were physically and emotionally abusive, Hickman had lived in eight homes by the time she was 14 years old.
