The Kentucky Baptist Convention has launched ‘Great Commission Kentucky,’ a blog about how Kentucky Baptists are involved in fulfilling the Great Commission locally, nationally and around the world.

According to KBC Communications Director Robert Reeves, the blog was developed in connection with Southern Baptist Convention President Johnny Hunt’s call for a renewed focus on fulfilling the Great Commission during the June 23-24 SBC annual meeting in Louisville. The blog can be accessed at www.greatcommissionkentucky.com.

“We wanted to create conversation space regarding the Great Commission Resurgence as it applies to Kentucky Baptist life,” said Reeves. “The purpose of the blog is to provide clear and accurate information that will help readers think through various issues.”

Reeves will serve as the primary blogger, but ‘Great Commission Kentucky’ will also include guest posts from other Kentucky Baptists and Southern Baptists.

‘Great Commission Kentucky’ will examine “how Kentucky Baptists are currently working together to share the gospel, explore ways to do things better, and to see what the Lord might show us all as we focus on our mission,” he said.

“This is a great opportunity for Kentucky Baptists and Southern Baptists to discuss the issues that have always been at the heart of our cooperation together,” said Reeves. “We believe this will be a very profitable discussion and invite everyone to join the dialogue.”

Hunt’s call is referred to as the Great Commission Resurgence. The central ideas of GCR were outlined in a report he authored along with Danny Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C.  The GCR document is available online at www.greatcommissionresurgence.com.

Kristie Randolph serves as the marketing & media relations associate for the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
