Greetings to my Texas Baptist family, The Lord has brought us together during a time when the world needs us the most. Our convention has been used by God to be the light of the world in the midst of very uncertain times. I welcome you to witness the power of Christ Jesus our Lord through the cooperative and collective work of our churches, institutions, and affiliated partners. Please know that your presence blesses us and encourages the Body of Christ to offer hope as we move forward by faith. Sincerely,

Pastor Michael A. Evans, Sr. President

Hello Texas Baptists! Welcome to the first ever "virtual" BGCT Annual Meeting. As you know this is not what we expected or, frankly, wanted. However, thanks to the approval of our Executive Board and the sweet cooperative spirit of our Texas Baptist family we are making it happen. I must also say thank you to our staff. So many of them gave the above and beyond effort to make all that you are seeing and experiencing so worthwhile. And, thanks to President Adam Wright and Dallas Baptist University who have served as our host of the meeting. They have been more than gracious and generous in providing the necessary space to make this event successful.   Finally, a big thank you to our Convention President, Dr. Michael Evans, for his service and leadership these past two years. The Lord raised him up for such a time as this and he has been more than a friend to all of us.  Thanks, as well, to our other officers in First Vice President Jason Burden and Second Vice President Jason Atchley. They, too, were faithful to the task and served with a kind and sacrificial spirit.

At the end of this year I will have completed 9 years of service to you, our Texas Baptist family. This has, without a doubt, been the most challenging year I have experienced as your Executive Director and, honestly, in ministry. However, please know how grateful I am for the privilege and I believe strongly that the best is yet to come. Blessings,

David W. Hardage Executive Director, Texas Baptists

T E X A SCOMPELLED BAPT I STS

BULLETIN VOLUME 34. NO 1 | NOV. 16, 2020

UPCOMING ANNUAL MEETING TO CELEBRATE TEXAS BAPTISTS LIVING “COMPELLED” IN 2020. By Texas Baptists Communications The Baptist General Convention of Texas will gather online for the 135th Annual Meeting on Nov. 16-17. The meeting will be held virtually for the first time ever in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Texas Baptists are emphasizing the call to live “Compelled” and celebrating the mission work made possible through partnerships across Texas, the country and around the world. “In the midst of this pandemic, Texas Baptists have locked arms, leaned into the challenge, and ministered effectively,” said Executive Director David Hardage. “At our upcoming online Annual Meeting Nov. 16-17, we will celebrate all that God has accomplished through our cooperative ministry efforts in the midst of difficult times.” On the evening of Mon., Nov. 16, church-elected messengers will gather for the Annual Meeting Business Session from 6:00-8:00 p.m. During this session, messengers will elect officers and vote on the 2020 proposed budget, nominations for affiliated boards and ministries, resolutions and more. Messengers must register by Nov. 13 to participate in the meeting. Texas Baptist-affiliated churches are encouraged to register their maximum number of messengers so that their church’s unique voice can be heard during the meeting. For more information about messenger registration and business items, click here. The entire Texas Baptists family–messengers and visitors alike–are invited to join the online Celebration Session on the night of Tues., Nov. 17. from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Texas Baptists will come together to celebrate all they have accomplished and learn about the year ahead. The service will include worship, an update from Executive Director Hardage, a sermon from President Michael A. Evans, Sr., and exciting ministry updates made possible through Cooperative Program giving. No registration is required. Visitors can join the session on this page or on the Texas Baptists Facebook Live. Worship rallies will be hosted at 7 p.m. on Sun., Nov. 15. Rallies will be held for Texas Baptists en Español and the African American Fellowship. A new rally for young adults, Devoted Young Adult Virtual Gathering: 20 Things We Learned in 2020, will also take place at 7 p.m. To register or find more rally information, click here. Leading up to the Annual Meeting, a series of live workshops are being hosted each Tuesday at 2 p.m. over Zoom. Workshops began Sept. 8 and will continue through Nov. 17. These workshops cover topics including evangelism, student missions, the Great Commission and more. The workshops are also being recorded, and are available here.

STANDING RULES FOR VIRTUAL MEETING By checking this box, you agree that you have read the 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting “Standing Rules” as recommended by the 2020 Committee on Annual Meeting (below). A copy of the “Standing Rules” will be sent to your email address upon completion of registration. It is generally understood, due to the virtual nature of the 2020 BGCT Annual Meeting and the implicit challenges to discussing business, that messengers are encouraged to hold new or miscellaneous business, motions, or resolutions until the next scheduled in-person meeting of the BGCT in 2021 in Galveston. However, the introduction of business is permitted under the following Standing Rules: 1. All reports, motions, resolutions or amendments to the constitution, bylaws or articles of incorporation, or any other business a messenger wishes the 2020 annual meeting to consider, shall be submitted by a registered messenger to the body by emailing the recording secretary of the convention at recordingsecretary@txb.org. The email must include your motion, name, address, church membership, email address, and phone number. 2. All main motions requiring a vote not scheduled on the agenda must be introduced by email to the recording secretary by October 31, 2020. 3. The 2020 Annual Meeting will follow the BGCT constitution and bylaws and Robert’s Rules of Order (RRO) where RRO do not conflict with the constitution and bylaws. An instructional video will be emailed to registered messengers by November 1, 2020, explaining the general process for discussion, debate, and voting electronically. 4. Discussion or debate shall be limited to two minutes per speaker. No messenger shall speak more than once on the same question. 5. Nomination speeches shall be limited to three minutes, and there may be no more than one nomination speech per candidate. 6. The chair shall recognize messengers wishing to speak to each side of the question alternately. 7. All messengers who attend and participate in the business meetings of the convention shall conduct themselves in keeping with the stated objectives of the Constitution of Texas Baptists. 8. In the election of officers, if no nominee receives a majority vote of the messengers, there shall be a runoff election between the two nominees who received the greatest number of votes on the first ballot.

BULLETIN

22


NOTICE Texas Baptists’ Bylaws call for the meeting of the convention to be conducted according to the current edition of Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised. The officers abide by this manual on parliamentary procedure. In the past, a messenger’s motion has been ruled out of order because it did not comply with Robert’s Rules of Order when a change in wording was all that was necessary for the motion to have been appropriate and in order. Every effort is being made for the business of our convention to be conducted in the smoothest and best way possible for the advancement of our Lord’s Kingdom. If a messenger has a motion to make, the parliamentarian will be available to assist with the wording so that the motion will be in proper format. Note: A motion will not be considered by the convention until a messenger has personally made it at the appropriate time and place while the convention is in session. Standing Rules for this Convention require that all motions be properly submitted by October 31, 2020.

HELP FOR MESSENGERS Materials are prepared each year to help messengers during business sessions of the Texas Baptists Annual Meeting. Among those materials is the Book of Reports, which contains the annual reports of Texas Baptists Institutions and Agencies, the Texas Baptists Executive Board and a copy of the Texas Baptists Constitution and Bylaws. Additionally, the Texas Baptists Bulletin contains information about business matters to be voted on and proceedings.

The Texas Baptists Bulletin is published daily during the Annual Meeting by the Baptist General Convention of Texas. The Bulletin includes announcements, committee reports and proceedings.

BULLETIN 2021 BUDGET PROCESS The Business and Financial Plan calls for each administrative office, ministry, and program area of the convention to submit an itemized budget of its expected expenditures for the next fiscal year to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). The CFO works with staff to make necessary changes and presents the proposed budget to Executive Leadership and then to the Finance Committee of the Executive Board which, in turn, presents it to the Executive Board for its approval. The Executive Board submits the Cooperative Program budget, consisting of all the anticipated income and expenditures which have been submitted and approved, to the Convention in session. Preparation of the proposed budget includes months of projections, research, planning, committee reviews and prayer to arrive at the proposed resource plan for the coming year. Such is the case for the proposed 2021 calendar year budget. For ordained staff members, the Executive Board allows advance designation of a portion of the salary as housing allowance as permissible by IRS regulations. Ordained staff members pay their own selfemployment taxes, which are 15.3 percent of taxable compensation. The detailed budget is published annually and provided to the Executive Board and committees involved in the budget preparation process. A budget summary is mailed to each church annually. The budget summary and the detailed report can be found at texasbaptists.org. For a hard copy, please call 888.244.9400. The Finance Committee is authorized, on a contingency basis, to adjust spending based on actual receipts.
