Since 2018, the Southern Baptist Convention has lost a series of high-profile leaders whose tenures ended due to controversy or misconduct. The latest to depart is Ronnie Floyd, a former megachurch pastor who resigned as president of the SBC’s Nashville-based Executive Committee in mid-October. With all of these leaders walking away, many are wondering who will ultimately lead the SBC.
Ronnie Floyd has resigned from his position as president and CEO of the Southern Baptist Convention's Executive Committee (EC) over the Executive Committee's decision to waive attorney-client privilege amid a denominational sex abuse investigation.
Members of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee will meet for the third time in three weeks — hoping to resolve a stalemate over the details of an investigation into the committee’s own handling of sexual abuse in the nation’s largest Protestant denomination.
