NEW ORLEANS (BP) -- Church statistics related to announced nominees for the offices of Southern Baptist Convention president and vice presidents have been compiled by Baptist Press, primarily drawing from the Annual Church Profile maintained by LifeWay Christian Resources.

PRESIDENT

Fred Luter, pastor, Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans -- In 2011, Franklin Avenue Baptist Church reported weekly worship attendance of 4,500; 204 baptisms; undesignated receipts of $4,456,899; Cooperative Program contributions of $193,791; $372,727 in Great Commission Giving and $394,304 in total missions expenditures. Contributions to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions or the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions were not reported.

Though the church was heavily impacted by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Franklin Avenue managed to increase CP giving from 1.6 percent pre-Katrina to 5.9 percent in 2010.

The initial Baptist Press story on Luter's nomination for SBC president can be accessed at www.bpnews.net/bpnews.asp?id=37114.
