Getting a Better Handle on SBC Meetings

I found this podcast last year (2018) shortly after the annual meeting. I have been going to the convention for many years. In many ways Jonathan and Amy have helped me get a little better handle on what is going on not only in the annual meeting, but also in the SBC in general. They have a good mix of news/current events, history, and resourses. It is great for getting prepared for the annual meeting. I played several of podcasts in the car on the way down to Birmingham so that my wife could get an overview of what was coming. If we are able to get others to go next year, I will have them start listening to this podcast as well. Jonathan and Amy's bantering is fun!! Get ready for Amy to blow our minds with what is in SBC history this week!!
