At the 2016 SBC Annual Meeting in St. Louis, North American Mission Board President Kevin Ezell presented a video report entitled It Is Working. The “It” he referenced was the New NAMB strategy of “increasing the amount of its resources devoted to church planting.” But is it really working? Is the post-Great Commission Resurgence New NAMB producing the results as advertised in press releases?
Before this conclusion can be reached, Southern Baptists must determine the questions to ask and the results to examine. A thorough exploration of the results based upon carefully chosen research questions must be completed at this critical time in the life of our country, the SBC, and the New NAMB.
