Southern Baptists, Evangelicals, and the Future of Denominationalism

Southern Baptists Evangelicals and the Future of Denominations

Union University, under the leadership of Dr. David Dockery, continues to lead the discussion in Southern Baptist life by putting together the best conferences about Baptist issues in the country.  In recognition of the 400th anniversary of the Baptist movement, the R.C. Ryan Center of Biblical Studies along with the Office of Church Relations is hosting Southern Baptists, Evangelicals, and the Future of Denominationalism on October 6-9, 2009 on the campus of Union University. This conference is being billed as “one of the most significant conferences to be found anywhere addressing some of the most vital issues facing Southern Baptists and Evangelicals as we prepare to move into the second decade of the 21st Century.”
