JACKSON — Stephen Rummage, pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church in Oklahoma City, Okla., will be nominated for presidency of the 2024 Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference (SBCPC).
Adam Dooley, pastor of Englewood Baptist Church in Jackson, will nominate Rummage.
“I cannot imagine a better choice to lead next year’s SBC Pastors’ Conference than Stephen Rummage,” said Dooley. “From my perspective, he represents everything that is good about Southern Baptists.”
“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 continued.
“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.
“We can trust this brother to plan a conference that stimulates our hearts and feeds our minds. I cannot wait to nominate him, and I hope all Southern Baptists will join me in supporting his willingness to serve,” Dooley said.
Rummage has a long history of leadership and service within the Southern Baptist Convention, having served as the president of the Florida Baptist State Convention in 2016-18 and chairman of the SBC Executive Committee during the same years. In 2012, he served as president of the Florida Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference.
He preached the annual convention sermon for the 2019 SBC meeting in Birmingham, Ala. His daily Bible teaching broadcast, “Moving Forward,” airs on over 300 radio stations nationwide. He has authored seven books and preached in 15 foreign countries.
Since Rummage became the pastor of Quail Springs Baptist Church in March 2019, the church has added 1,032 members, including 365 additions through baptism. The church currently has 3,743 resident members. In 2021 and 2022, Quail Springs gave more than $1 million annually through the Cooperative Program of the SBC, representing 13.5 percent of the church’s undesignated receipts. B&R
