Baptist State Convention of North Carolina Executive Director-Treasurer Milton A. Hollifield Jr. made the following statement about J.D. Greear’s election as Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) president. Greear serves as pastor of the Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham.
“J.D. Greear has proven to be an effective pastor and leader that God is using in a mighty way at the Summit Church. As a former missionary, J.D. is committed to taking the gospel to the ends of the earth through an emphasis on personal evangelism, discipleship, missions and church planting.
“As a North Carolina Baptist, I am thankful that God has given me a front row seat to see how He is working in J.D.’s life and ministry. My prayer is that all Southern Baptists can come together in a spirit of unity and commit to pray for J.D. and support him as he begins his tenure as our SBC president.”
