Annual Meeting

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives for him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7

2015 TEXAS BAPTISTS ANNUAL MEETING

November 8-10, 2015 ★ Dr Pepper Arena ★ Embassy Suites Frisco Hotel & Convention Center ★ Frisco, Texas


Calling All the Messengersby Lecrae has become one of my favorite work-out songs. The pulsing beat and captivating lyrics urge us as God’s messengers to reflect his image and speak up. For 130 years, the Baptist General Convention of Texas has called messengers from Texas Baptist churches to gather for worship, fellowship and business.

This year, we’ll examine Baptist Distinctives and share the reasons we choose to be Baptist. Together we’ll explore our deep roots and celebrate our living legacy through inspiring worship, enlightening workshops and educational exhibits.

I’m calling all the messengers to join me November 8-10 in Frisco for Texas Baptists’ Annual Meeting with the theme Deep Roots…Living Legacy and scripture focus Colossians 2:6-7.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives for him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Blessings,

Kathy R. Hillman, 2015 President
Baptist General Convention of Texas

Dear Texas Baptists,

First of all, thank you for attending this year’s Annual Meeting in Frisco. Regardless of whether you are an elected messenger, a guest, an Institution representative or an exhibitor, please know we are grateful you are here.

It is our hope and prayer that you find this year’s gathering to be both informational and inspirational. Our fellow Texas Baptists, who made up the committees and teams that planned this event, did so believing everyone present would depart blessed and encouraged. I know you share my gratitude for the time, effort, and energy so many gave to make this meeting happen.

The challenges in front of us as a convention are significant. Texas continues to grow and change. As a family of churches we, too, are working to adjust properly and effectively in order to touch the people of this state with the Great Commandment and to impact Texas, and beyond, with the Great Commission.

Our future is bright! Please continue to pray, give and find a ways to be involved. You are a blessing!

Sincerely,

David Hardage, Executive Director
Baptist General Convention of Texas
