Introducing #OneforSeven

What difference can one dollar make? Well, one dollar a week from each active Southern Baptist could double the number of IMB missionaries on the field. Our friends at Brainerd Baptist Church and the IMB have just recently rolled out a new initiative called ONEforSEVEN. This initiative encourages each Southern Baptist to give an additional […]

We are thrilled to announce the 2018 B21 Panel at the Southern Baptist Convention in Dallas, TX! This year marks the tenth anniversary of hosting the B21 Panel during the annual meeting and we couldn’t be more excited to be celebrating in Dallas! Each year we gather around open dialogue with key leaders and ask the […]

Platt’s Departure from the IMB: Great Things Behind and Before

Jaclyn S. Parrish worked as a writer for the International Mission Board in South Asia. She currently serves in the United States as a writer, editor, and social media associate for the IMB. You can follow her on Twitter at @JaclynSParrish. I think I sat in my car for a solid twenty minutes. Shoulders hunched. […]

Why I Am Hopeful, Confident, and Excited for the Future of the IMB

Perhaps I am just a naive and idealistic millennial, but I remain hopeful and excited for the future of the IMB. Without a doubt, yesterday was a heavy day for Southern Baptists and for the International Mission Board (IMB). IMB President, Dr. David Platt announced that he has asked IMB Trustees to begin a search […]

6 Steps Every Christian Can Take To Improve Their Devotional Life

The biggest steps are often the smallest steps. Most of the people I know think bible reading and prayer are small steps. They’re boring steps. They’re not world-changing steps. They’re certainly not big steps. But a quick look at every survey examining “causes for spiritual growth” that I’ve seen, tells a different story. It turns […]

Global Hunger Relief Run 2017

  I was 21-years-old and 2 weeks into my first real job. After a few days of manual labor at the Nashville Convention Center, I found myself standing in the exhibit area of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission talking about an organization that I was only beginning to understand. I may have been underprepared […]

Send Phoenix: Catch the Vision at the SBC 2017

  The SBC is preparing for her Annual Meeting. Aside from being far west of the typical SBC footprint, and being a hot place for us baptists to gather, Phoenix is also one of the most unreached large cities in America. By any measure—city population, metro area or regional influence—Phoenix is a major North American […]

Sola Scriptura: The Primacy of Scripture in the Work of Missions

  It may seem obvious, but I’m going to say it anyway: the primacy and necessity of the Bible must never be assumed—especially in the Great Commission. The importance of keeping this truth ever before us cannot be overstated. As I write this from a plane in East Asia, I can’t help but reminisce over […]

The ERLC, Prestonwood, And The Mission

Since 1845, Southern Baptist’s have focused on “… eliciting, combining, and directing the energies of the Baptist denomination of Christians, for the propagation of the gospel….” While it’s true that our faithfulness to this cooperative mission has varied over the years, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed with gratitude for the grace of God so […]

Who Is My Neighbor – The Refugee/Immigrant Edition

  With all of the heated conversations I’ve  heard concerning immigration and the refugee crisis (often brought to the forefront by this election cycle), I’ve been constantly reminded of the parable of the Good Samaritan Jesus tells in Luke 10:25–37. As Christians we have to be careful to think about these issues biblically, first and foremost not […]
