SBTC at SBC reception welcomes Texans

NASHVILLE  More than 400 guests attended the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention reception Monday evening, June 14, after the day’s events connected with the SBC’s annual meeting. Held at the JW Marriott, the reception was billed as being “for current Texans, former Texans and anyone wanting to be a Texan” and drew pastors and friends from across the state and nation. Guests enjoyed snacks, desserts and fellowship at the come and go event, which is hosted yearly by the SBTC at the SBC’s annual meeting.

Many came to greet Nathan Lorick, the SBTC’s executive director-elect who will assume the convention’s helm July 1, and to express appreciation to outgoing executive director Jim Richards.

Earlier in the day, the SBC Executive Committee recognized Richards with a resolution of affirmation, honoring his contributions and retirement.
