“Southern Baptist churches, Great Commission Baptist churches, must also learn to effectively navigate the SBC so we can achieve greater participation, representation, articulation, and celebration from every nation, tribe, people, and tongue in our Convention,” Grant wrote in the publication’s introduction. “As a result, the SBC will realize a closer alignment to that perfect image in heaven – a people of every nation, tribe, people, and language standing before the throne and before the Lamb.”
Navigating the SBC is designed to help pastors and church members better understand the value the SBC brings to Great Commission work.
“Overall, the end game is so everyone, from the entire, multiethnicity of the SBC, will be able to have a voice and engage the structure on equal footing,” Grant told BP.
Triggs, who planted Grace Alive in 2017, previously served three years in student ministry at Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla., and completed a nine-month church planting internship at The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
Triggs expresses gratitude for the SBC.
“I appreciate the camaraderie and encouragement that they have within the system, and also I’m grateful for an opportunity to be able to give back, because it’s not just about us reaping the benefits,” he said. “It also gives us a platform to continue to plant more churches as well.”
