HENDERSONVILLE — Greg Davidson, pastor of Trinity Baptist Church, Vacaville, Calif., will be nominated for president of the 2022 SBC Pastors’ Conference. Bruce Chesser, pastor of First Baptist Church, Hendersonville, announced his intention to make the nomination in an email to Baptist Press.
The nomination, made May 13, will take place Monday, June 14, as part of the pastors’ track during the Send Conference in Nashville that precedes the SBC annual meeting at the Music City Center.
In 45 years of ministry, Davidson has pastored in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and California. He has served in several roles in the California Southern Baptist Convention.
Davidson also is the state coordinator for the Conservative Baptist Network and moderator of the Redwood Empire Baptist Association.
“Greg Davidson is one of the most consistent and committed pastors that I have ever known,” said Chesser, current president of the Tennessee Baptist Convention. “I have known him since 1975 when we were students together at what was then Mobile College (University of Mobile today).”
According to ACP reports, Trinity has grown from 384 members in 2014 when Davidson arrived to 637 in 2019, the last year a figure was given. In 2019 the church gave $137,723 —13.5 percent of its total budget – through the Cooperative Program to support Southern Baptist ministries and missions. In 2020 the church gave $129,505 through CP, or 14 percent of its total budget.
“Greg is an expository preacher who loves God’s Word,” Chesser said. “He will provide outstanding leadership to develop a Pastors’ Conference for 2022 in Anaheim, Calif., that will both inspire and encourage every Southern Baptist pastor, pastor’s wife and staff member. He is a pastor, a preacher of God’s truth and a soul winner.” B&R
