Columbus | Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd officially closed the 2015 annual meeting this afternoon, but not before calling to the platform leaders from St. Louis and Missouri who will carry the torch for next year’s meeting in the Gateway City.

Ohioans and Missourians stood with one another on the stage, celebrating the evangelistic outreach done in Columbus through Crossover, and appealing to Baptists to come to St. Louis June 14-15, 2016. (Crossover Saturday is June 12).

Thank you for following the news from Columbus this week! You can read more in the next edition of the Illinois Baptist, online at http://ibonline.IBSA.org.
