The recent news about North American Mission Board church plants identifying women in their congregation as pastors may have piqued your interest in what the process is like for those interested in planting.

Some insight can be found on the Southern Baptist subreddit on Reddit.com in a thread named “Church planter in residence at an SBC church in WA state. Struggling with whether or not to go through the accreditation/ assessment process.

As you can read, the anonymous author speaks to worries about whether or not to plant with the North American Mission Board because of the current controversy as well as a degree of ambivalence about specifically affirming the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

Lines Are Being Drawn in the SBC’s Battle for the Credibility of the Bible

To put it mildly, these are strange days in the Southern Baptist Convention.

Here’s what I mean:

I grew up after the Conservatives were fighting the Liberals in a battle for Scripture’s authority.
