This past Sunday I was blessed to preach for @anthonysvajda, who earned his MDiv & PhD at @SWBTS. Yesterday, he transitioned from the pastorate to become @sbtcleadership's pastoral ministries associate leading church revitalization for @_SBTC. Congrats!

I'm grateful for my @SWBTS evangelism PhD students, all of whom intentionally take time to read deeply in the field, while also not neglecting to take time to reach people widely with the gospel.

At the @SWBTS Alumni & Friends Luncheon at #SBC22, we’ll be giving out a copy of “The Authority and Sufficiency of Scripture,” edited by @adamwgreenway and @davidsdockery. Register today at!

Special thanks to @LifewayResearch @carolpipes @smcconn, et. al for compiling the 2021 ACP information & publicizing it.

Overall, giving, total congregations, baptisms, & other additions are up from 2020. Total associations, church-type missions, & membership are down from 2020.

I'm so blessed to be with my friends at @alsbom this week training pastors and leaders how to mobilize their congregations to evangelize. I've met many @SWBTS alumni here in the great state of Alabama. If you're in the state, come join us tonight, tomorrow, or Thursday.
