Lifeway Christian Resources and the North American Mission Board are asking messengers to the upcoming Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting in Nashville to consider ministry assignment changes related to college and university students.
If approved, the assignment for reaching and mobilizing college and university students in North America will transition from Lifeway to NAMB.
Messengers will consider the Lifeway request first, which would allow Lifeway to amend its stated mission and all 10 ministry assignments.
The proposed NAMB ministry assignment revision reflects extensive collaboration between the SBC Executive Committee staff, NAMB leadership and Baptist collegiate state directors.
Lifeway will continue to serve churches in ministering to college and university students as a part of its next-generation ministry by providing resources that help disciple young adults and deepen their walk with Jesus Christ.
