Support of David Platt


I would like to express my enthusiastic support of the election of David Platt as the president of the IMB. It is exciting to see that God has raised up a young pastor with a deep passion for the gospel who will lead the charge to take the message of Jesus Christ to the darkest places on this earth.

David has a high view of God, Scripture, and Jesus Christ and our convention and the kingdom of God will benefit greatly from his leadership. I am looking forward to the days ahead when a new generation will be challenged through Davidís life and example to live radical lives for the gospel.

Every Georgia Baptist who loves the gospel of Jesus Christ should rejoice over this decision and be in prayer for this man as he assumes this new role and as our convention unites around the urgent need to take the gospel to every nation and people group.
