Dr. Frank Page, pastor of Taylors First Baptist Church in Taylors, SC, was reelected without opposition to his second term as Southern Baptist Convention President. After the announcement was made, Page seemed genuinely humbled and on the verge of tears behind the podium.
He has been a consistent, conciliatory and conservative convention head (How’s that for Baptist alliteration?) for the past year. This is not just important for the SBC, but also for evangelicals as Page leads the largest Protestant denomination in America and is often considered the spokesperson for evangelicalism.
