2024 SBC Pastors Conference theme, officers announced

Stephen Rummage, president of the 2024 Southern Baptist Convention Pastors Conference, has announced the theme and officers for next year’s event, June 9–10 in Indianapolis.

The theme for the conference will be “Faithful: Pursuing Your Mission.” The key verse for the theme is Rev. 17:14, “For He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him are called and chosen and faithful.”


Rummage, who serves as pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church, Oklahoma City, also announced officers for the conference.

Erik D. Cummings, pastor of New Life Baptist Church of Carol City, Miami, Florida, will serve as vice president, and Ray Anderson, who is minister of missions and evangelism at Quail Springs Baptist Church, will be treasurer.

Cummings currently serves on the SBC Executive Committee and served as the president of the Florida Baptist Convention from 2018–2021. Anderson has been at Quail Springs since 2012. He previously served with the International Mission Board (IMB) in Central Asia.

Rummage expressed his commitment to support pastors in prayer. A dedicated online prayer request form has been set up, allowing pastors and church leaders to share specific needs. The form can be found here.
