Stephen Rummage has announced his intentions to be nominated for president of the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors Conference at this year’s June 11-12 event in New Orleans, which will be held in conjunction with SBC Annual Meeting. If elected, Rummage would serve as president for the 2024 Pastors Conference.
Rummage, pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, will be nominated by Adam Dooley, pastor of pastor of Englewood Baptist in Jackson, Tennessee.
“For years, his servant leadership in local churches of all sizes and his scholarship at the seminary level have inspired us to serve the Lord with excellence,” Dooley said in a statement to Baptist Press on Friday (April 21). “With the heart of a pastor and the mind of a professor, Stephen not only wrote the book on engaging exposition, but he also models the same week in and week out at the great Quail Springs Baptist Church.”
Rummage previously served as pastor of Bell Shoals Baptist Church in the Tampa area from 2009-2019. He was elected president of the Florida Baptist State Convention in 2016–18. During that time, Rummage also chaired the SBC Executive Committee. He served as president of the Florida Baptist Convention Pastors Conference, and he preached the SBC Convention sermon in 2019. He has authored several books and is the founder of Moving Forward, a daily radio teaching ministry, according to his church’s website.
He and his wife, Michele, have one adult son.
