SBC retools

Outgoing executive committee president Morris Chapman compared Southern Baptist Convention's restructuring proposals, such as cutting the executive committee's budget and changing the relationship between state conventions and the national body, to rearranging chairs on the Titanic.

"Failure to fulfill the Great Commission is not a structural problem and cannot be solved by structural solutions," Chapman said.

Johnny Hunt, outgoing SBC president, spoke in favor of the proposals, contained within a "Great Commission Resurgence Task Force" report that was approved at the SBC's June gathering.
