Platt headlines closing convention session
The 2016 annual meeting of North Carolina Baptists closed Tuesday night with a message from David Platt, president of the International Mission Board (IMB). As expected, Platt challenged messengers and guests with a passionate message from 1 Corinthians 15 and stories from his experience in international missions. He thanked Baptists for giving generously through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.
Platt reported that next year IMB will operate with a balanced budget and increase the number of missionaries sent around the world for the first time since 2009. That’s great news, but I hope this will not cause us to relax from generous, sacrificial giving to international missions.
