The chairperson of the Great Commission Resurgence Task Force, Ronnie Floyd, has decided to remove “baptist” from the name of his church. Personally, I find this action from an alleged leader of the SBC to be extremely poor leadership. Yes, Floyd’s church is autonomous and they can do whatever they wish, including removing the word “baptist” from their name. However, if someone is ashamed of the name “baptist,” then I think that he nor his church members have no business being appointed to SBC boards and task forces.
It would be nice to see SBC leaders who actually lead and not just jump on a fad bandwagon.
