Seoul Baptist Church pastor to be nominated for SBTC vice president

Bart Barber, pastor of First Baptist Church in Farmersville, announced Oct 29 that he will nominate Sookwan Lee, pastor of Seoul Baptist Church in Houston, to serve as vice president of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. Barber plans to make the nomination at the SBTC annual meeting, which will take place Nov. 10-11 at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s MacGorman Chapel in Fort Worth.

“Pastor Sookwan Lee has served his church with the level of prayerful devotion that exemplifies the highest ideals of the Christian pastorate,” Barber said.

“He has served the SBTC with unrelenting faithfulness and wisdom. Electing Pastor Lee will exemplify the “Look Like Heaven” theme that our state convention has followed this year, not primarily because of his Korean ethnicity, but because of the way his character and spirit bear the marks of Jesus. THAT’S what Heaven looks like.
