Baptist21 would like to make you aware of an address that will be delivered on Thursday April 16 by Danny Akin entitled, “Axioms For A Great Commission Resurgence.” This sermon will outline the focus and hopefully the future of a Great Commission Resurgence. Baptist21 will provide the video of the sermon in its entirety as it is made available.
In the meantime, Dr. Akin would covet prayer. Here is a portion of an email that was sent out to his students (we publish this email material with the consent of Dr. Akin):
On April 16th during Thursday chapel, I will be bringing a message addressing “A Great Commission Resurgence” in the SBC. This is something that has been on my heart for some time, and it is an issue that I have been encouraged by a number of friends to address. I would ask for your prayers between now and then. Ask that God would give me wisdom and insight to articulate clearly and carefully what a Great Commission resurgence could and should look like in the Southern Baptist Convention. All of us are aware that we are in a time of transition and even confusion in our denomination. Our convention is a wonderful network of churches, but many of us sense there is a need for a renewal and revival that desperately needs to take place. It is my prayer that God will use this message to at least give clarity to what it is that Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary believes God has called us to be and to do as we move forward in the 21st century. So please pray for me. I know better than anyone how desperately I need them.
