Contributors to CRVoices are generally Southern Baptist pastors and academicians. We also post articles and media from prominent SBC figures who are not contributors to the site, but promote principles we believe are necessary to a healthy SBC. Finally, we also draw on insights from non-SBC intellectuals who face various challenges in their own denominations and the broader culture similar to those facing the SBC.
