The Great Commission Resurgence

Dr. Danny Akin, President of the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (Wake Forest, North Carolina), recently delivered a powerful and visionary message to Southeastern students during chapel. It is worth your time to listen to this message and consider fervently supporting Dr. Akins vision for a Great Commission Resurgence in the SBC. In his message he presents eleven axioms Southern Baptists need to commit to for such a resurgence.

I believe Dr. Akin’s vision is the right one for our convention for such a time as this. You can read and hear his message and the 11 axioms at You can also add your name to the already more than 900 who signed in support of his vision for the SBC. I have already signed.

I am looking forward to the Great Commission Resurgence report that will be shared at the Southern Baptist Convention in June. I am praying this will be the match that lights a much needed fire under Southern Baptists.
