BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (BP) — This year’s Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference will center on the theme “Kingdom character” and feature speakers who exemplify the character traits noted in Matt. 5:1-16.
Pastors’ Conference President Danny Wood said, “We as a convention, and really Christian ministries in general, have had some real struggles with some character issues.
