Dozens of Southern Baptist megachurch pastors and their wives met with Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials on Wednesday to cap off the annual Southern Baptist Convention MegaMetro retreat.
Organized by former SBC President and Arkansas pastor Ronnie Floyd, as many as 68 megachurch pastors and 65 of their wives traveled to the nation’s capital on Monday to partake in the annual invite-only retreat, which was attended only by pastors with Sunday church attendance of 2,000-plus.
“Folks wanted to come to Washington, D.C. so that we can pray for our country and be in the environment of Washington,” Floyd told The Christian Post.
During the 3-day conference, discussion was devoted “to talking church.” While Floyd led the pastors through various panels and interviews touching on how to “reach people for Christ,” Floyd’s wife, Jeana, led separate discussions for the pastors’ wives. Read more on Christian Post.
