Southern Baptist Convention Meets In Indianapolis

3 days ago Thousands will gather in Indianapolis June 11-12 for the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. The meeting comes at a fraught time in the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. Delegates will vote on whether to enact a constitutional ban on churches with women pastors. They’ll hear a report on how an earlier effort to reverse that trend fell short. And they’ll vote for a new president from among six candidates. Former President Donald Trump will give a virtual speech an adjacent event.
