Press Release: Russell Moore elected president of SBC Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission - March 26, 2013
More to come...
The ERLC Presidential Search Committee members have been working for several months to fulfill their charge of discovering the person God is leading them to nominate for the full board to consider as the next President of the Commission.
As a committee, we are answerable first to the ERLC’s Board of Trustees and believe that our work is not complete until the full board has taken final action on the nomination we bring. Because of that commitment, we also believe the best stewardship of our responsibility is to wait on any public announcements about the conclusion of our business until our business is actually concluded. We look forward to that moment and will be prepared to speak at that time.
The ERLC has a rich legacy. It is our prayer as a search committee, and my prayer as chair of the committee, that God will continue to bless the ERLC, Dr. Land’s legacy, and most importantly, the moral voice to and on behalf of Southern Baptists, far more abundantly than all we ask or think. We believe more strongly than ever that He is going to do exactly that.
Sincerely and for Jesus’ Sake,
Chairman, ERLC Presidential Search Committee
