Historic days at SBC and SBTS: the tweets tell the story

Communications Staff — June 24, 2009

Southern Seminary professors and administrators provide a snapshot — via Twitter — of the passage of the Great Commission Resurgence task force and the seminary’s 150th anniversary celebration.

Great Commission Resurgence task force approved by SBC messengers:

albertmohler: Ok folks, here we go. Pray that the motion is received with great enthusiasm by the messengers and that I present it well.

timothywashere: watching @AlbertMohler present the Great Commission Resurgence; pray that, whatever the outcome, God and Gospel are focus, rather than SBC.
