Southern Baptists Elect First African-American Leader
06/20/2012

At the end of the day Wednesday, the presidency of the Southern Baptist Convention will pass to an African American pastor for the first time. The nation's largest Protestant denomination voted Tuesday to elect the Rev. Fred Luter Jr. to lead them. It's an important step for a denomination that was formed on the wrong side of slavery. Faced with declining membership, the SBC is trying to appeal to a more diverse group of believers. Luter's election at the SBC's annual meeting in New Orleans helps those efforts. Some Southern Baptists also believe adopting the alternative name Great Commission Baptists will help. They say there are too many people who have negative associations with the current name. The results of a vote on that proposal will be announced Wednesday.
