Urgent need at border, SBC leaders say

Southern Baptist leaders visited the U.S.-Mexico border in July to assess needs and gather information to help formulate ideas for ministry through Southern Baptists and their partners.

The team included Marshal Ausberry, first vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), and Todd Unzicker, an associate pastor at The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, where SBC president J.D. Greear is pastor.

“I kind of see it as a modern-day diaspora, that God is shifting the population around for His purposes,” Ausberry said.

“We don’t get into the politics of it, but as believers in Christ Jesus … we still need to show them that human dignity of food, clothing and shelter,” he added. (BP)
