Pastor of Hope Baptist Church Springfield, MO Announces Church’s Departure from SBC via Twitter

Joshua Jenkins, Pastor of the Hope Baptist Church of Springfield, MO announced over the weekend that his church “declared its secession from the Southern Baptist Convention” because, in his words, “The institutions [of the SBC – ed.] no longer represent us and indeed work against so much of what we stand for.”

At the time of this writing the church has offered no further explanation for their decision.

Jenkins joins Jeff Noblit, another Reformed Baptist pastor, of Grace Life Church of Muscle Shoals, whose church announced their own departure from the SBC in October of 2019.

There Is No Peace (Tom Ascol on the Problem of Karen Swallow Prior’s Endorsement of the Revoice Conference)

In this article Tom Ascol of Founders Ministries writes on the problems created for Southern Baptists by Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary’s decision to hire Karen Swallow Prior.

Ascol writes in the piece, “As Dr. Rosaria Butterfield has stated, speaking of the Revoice conference, ‘Gay Christianity is a different religion.’

Yet, President Danny Akin, President of Southeastern, has hired Dr. Karen Swallow Prior to teach at his school when she has unapologetically endorsed a conference that, in the words of Dr. Butterfield, promotes a different religion. And he expects Southern Baptists to sit back quietly and pay her salary.

Leave the SBC, Leave the Field

On October 21st Jeff Noblit, pastor of Grace Life Church of the Shoals and founder of Anchored in Truth Ministries announced via Twitter that he had asked his congregation to end fellowship with the Southern Baptist Convention.

Prior to this announcement making the rounds on my Twitter feed I honestly had not ever heard the name Jeff Noblit.[1]  However, I now realize he has a significant footprint in Reformed Baptist circles – the very circles that I think offer the best hope for renewal in evangelicalism broadly and the SBC in particular.  Noblit’s influence appeared not just in retweets and discernment blog posts but in the general upswell of talk (again, on my Twitter feed) of talk about a large exodus of confessional and doctrinally-minded congregations from the SBC.
