Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee

The Executive Committee exists to minister to the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention by acting for the Convention ad interim in all matters not otherwise provided for in a manner that encourages the cooperation and confidence of the churches, associations, and state conventions and facilitates maximum support for worldwide missions and ministries.

The Executive Committee is governed by its board of trustees – the “members” of the Executive Committee – which are elected by the Convention. All of the Executive Committee’s cooperate powers are exercised by or under the authority of its board of trustees, and the affairs of the corporation are managed under the direction of that board.
