This year’s Annual Meeting is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 11-12, at the Joseph H. Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. The Monday evening session will feature a special church planting commissioning service that will focus on pockets of lostness, unreached people groups and sending churches. The Tuesday evening session will feature a special “Who’s Your One?” emphasis with a worship service and sermon by Ronnie Floyd, newly elected president of the executive committee of the Southern Baptist Convention.
This year’s Annual Meeting theme is “God’s Great Work” based on the Great Commission and the Great Commandment, found in Matthew 28:18-19 and 22:36-40, respectively. This year’s convention president, Steve Scoggins, will be highlighting the significance of the connection between the two, as he preaches from Nehemiah 6:3 for the president’s address, also featured on Monday evening.
The focus on “God’s Great Work” will continue throughout Annual Meeting with worship, special presentations and reports.
