An opportunity to hear from SBC entities

We're less than two weeks away from what would have been a trip to Orlando for #SBC20. We will miss connecting with a lot of you in person, but your BR team will still be reporting on updates from our Southern Baptist entities.

SBC Advance is a two-hour online event next Tuesday, June 2 that will provide ministry updates from and interviews with SBC leaders. It's definitely no replacement for the annual meeting, but it does give you an opportunity to gather virtually with Southern Baptists. Don't miss the IMB's Sending Celebration, another annual meeting favorite, which will be held virtually June 9.

Has your church or small group started meeting in person or outdoors? Tell us about your regathering stories – email [email protected].
