Virginia Baptist Historical Society Annual Meeting
Thursday, June 7, 2018
7:30 p.m., Bon Air Baptist Church, Buford Road Campus
Global Religious Liberty
This year, as our keynote speaker, we welcome Dr. Elijah Brown, General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance (BWA), a network representing 47 million Baptists in 124 countries and territories. Dr. Brown is the ninth General Secretary of the BWA and the youngest to hold the position. His passion for justice has led him to conduct research among displaced camps in Africa and the Middle East, testify before the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission of the U.S. Congress, and speak around the world. Join us as we reflect upon the Baptist contribution to global religious liberty and human rights and share updates on the work of the Society. The program is open to the public.
