Appreciation for support of younger leaders


Please allow me to say “Thank you” for the piece you did several weeks ago about the movement among younger leaders titled “Passing the Baton” and the followup article titled “Stained Glass and Starbucks.” They were well done and greatly appreciated.

Having poured much of my energy these past 18 months into meeting with, emailing, dialoguing and connecting to many of these young ministers, I am tremendously optimistic about the future of our work together. The entire section you devoted was so well done and encouraging to us all.

I know you have reported on this effort before, but wanted to say again to you to keep it up. We have an outstanding group of young ministers coming up in SBC life. They are energetic, visionary, passionate and gifted. They are our future and your acknowledgement of the effort to pass the baton will bear much fruit.
