    FORT WORTH, Texas (BP) -- After two days of meetings, representatives of Paige Patterson and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary say they have determined, with no disagreements, the rightful ownership of 89 boxes of documents related to Patterson's 1992-2003 presidency at Southeastern.

    Southeastern said it recovered "student" and "personnel" records from Patterson. Patterson's representatives said he maintained all but about one-third of a box out of the documents at issue. Both sides agreed the meetings -- held Jan. 7-8 on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary -- were cordial. Read More

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- When a white supremacist gunned down nine black worshipers at Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, S.C., mission catalyst Bob Lawler knew he had to say something to the Baptist association he led in northern California.

    So Lawler gathered the association's 48 ethnically diverse churches for a joint worship service. When he stood to preach, Lawler harkened to the words of Martin Luther King Jr.

    "In the 'I Have a Dream' speech," Lawler recalled telling the Redwood Empire Baptist Association, "not only did [King] say, 'I have a dream. I have a dream.' He also said, 'with this faith'" repeatedly, "reminding us that it's not just a humanitarian effort" to effect racial reconciliation. "It's an effort based on the Gospel." Read More

    WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP) -- It started with a prayer.

    In his home country of the Dominican Republic, youth pastor Moises Gomez had a burning desire to be better equipped to serve the church. He and his pastor asked the Lord to provide a way for Gomez to be equipped for full-time ministry.

    "I think we should pray and see God respond in this prayer," Gomez recounted his pastor telling him in 2014.

    Two weeks later the phone rang, and Edgar Aponte was on the other end. Aponte was Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary's director of Hispanic leadership development at the time (now the International Mission Board's vice president of mobilization). Read More

    WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP) -- Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Danny Akin encouraged 169 new seminary graduates and 30 undergraduates Dec. 7 to trust in the steadfast promise that God will never abandon them.

    Akin highlighted two points in his commencement message from Hebrews 13:5. First, he said God is the one who makes this promise. Noting similar Old Testament promises from Deuteronomy 31:6,8 and Joshua 1:5, Akin explained that God has promised to never leave His children in the past nor will He leave His children in the present.

    "This is a truth that was real for Old Testament saints; it is a truth that was real for New Testament saints; and it is a truth that is real for you and me today right where we are," he said. Read More
