Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear will join a lineup of speakers including Tim Tebow, Benjamin Watson and Jim Daly at the 48th annual March for Life on Jan. 29 in Washington, D.C.
Greear will be the first SBC president to speak at the event. Other SBC leaders have addressed the crowd in the past, including Richard Land as president of the Christian Life Commission (now Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission) as well as Virginia pastor and former International Mission Board President David Platt.
The March for Life has taken place in Washington on or near Jan. 22 since 1974, one year after the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion in the U.S.
