SBC search team issues call for potential replacements for Ronnie Floyd


NASHVILLE (BP) – The search team looking for Ronnie Floyd’s replacement as president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee issued a call for nominees on Tuesday.

Recommendations can be submitted through a portal at sbc.net/ecsearch. Submissions through mail can be sent to the SBC Executive Committee, 901 Commerce St., Nashville, TN 37203.

Candidates can include senior pastors as well as entity leaders or experienced executive pastors, said search team chairman Adron Robinson, senior pastor at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Country Club Hills, Ill.

“We’ve seen how vital it is for the EC president to be an administrator and also a communicator,” Robinson said. “We want to hear from our SBC family for their recommendations and plan to leave the portal open until early August.”

Robinson declined to share a specific timeline for the search team to complete its work and make a recommendation to the full Executive Committee.

He asked for Southern Baptists to continue to pray for the team as well as the Convention.

“We know the EC has lost credibility among the messengers in the past two years,” he said. “We want to make sure we were hearing clearly the direction of the messengers before moving forward with our search. It’s important to restoring future credibility.”
