Welcome from our Executive Director

Strong churches with a bold commitment to the Great Commission! Our vision for the SBC of Virginia can be stated in a simple sentence: Strong churches with a bold commitment to the Great Commission. Over 780 churches are united in seeking to grow stronger and to be boldly committed to the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. SBC of Virginia churches work together to strengthen churches and leaders, to plant churches, and to do the work of evangelism and missions as Christ’s ambassadors. SBC of Virginia churches are strong churches with a bold commitment to the Great Commission.

Strong Churches. The SBC of Virginia is a coalition of churches. Our cooperative partnership to advance the Gospel is only as effective as the strength of the churches that join together in the SBC of Virginia. As Ecclesiastes teaches, we are stronger as we work together. We are committed to strengthening the churches that comprise the SBC of Virginia.

Bold Commitment. More than ever, the need to reach our neighbors, the nations, and all generations is calling us to a bold commitment. The SBC of Virginia is a pacesetter in missions support and generosity. However, an even bolder commitment is required of us. The stewardship of your church’s missionary resources is our top priority. Each church’s bold commitment to the Cooperative Program partnership and Vision Virginia priorities is essential. I pray the Lord will lead our churches to an even bolder commitment of resources to reach our neighbors, the nations, and all generations.

The Great Commission. No committee or task force is required for us to know what our mission is as a coalition of churches. The Lord Jesus has called every Christian and every church to obey the Great Commission. We trust in the Lord’s promise to empower His people as we work together to fulfill Christ’s mission. We are His mission force, and this is our mission field!

Sincerely,
DR. BRIAN AUTRY,
Executive Director
