Leadership The ERLC Leadership Council is a collection of SBC pastors and leaders who receive intentional investment from the ERLC and serve as ambassadors for the organization. During their annual term, these council members enjoy equipping through conference calls and events while providing insights to the ERLC and occasional content for erlc.com. From coast to coast, from mega church to country church, from men to women, and from various backgrounds, these leaders represent a cross section of evangelicalism in general and the SBC in particular. Many Leadership Council members currently serve in pastoral ministry. Others serve in various lay or parachurch settings.
