GLEN ALLEN, Va. (BP) — More than 70 church leaders age 40 and younger from across Virginia gathered at the Young Pastors’ Summit on Jan. 15, an annual event hosted by the Southern Baptist Convention of Virginia.

Clyde Meador, interim executive vice president of the International Mission Board, and Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources, were keynote speakers. A panel of SBC of Virginia pastors and Christian leaders also led a discussion.

Sean Couch, pastor of Christiansburg Baptist Church, described the summit as “really encouraging…. It was just a fountain of wisdom. I was writing down as much as I could as quickly as I could.”

The summit is intended for encouraging and challenging young pastors and pastoral staff, part of the initiative by Brian Autry, executive director of the SBC of Virginia, to invest in young leaders.
