Jonathan Merritt and the Southern Baptist Convention

Jonathan Merritt has been in the news quite frequently in recent weeks as he is shaking up the Southern Baptist Convention in an effort to raise awareness of climate change and encourage action around sustainable, environmental practices.  Merritt is a religion and culture writer, the spokesperson for the Southern Baptist Environment and Climate Initiative, and a student at Southeastern Seminary.


Jonathan recently screened RENEWAL and offered positive feedback that he will be sharing through his website. In the near future, Jonathan will be inviting a group of young adults from CrossPointe Church in Duluth, GA, to screen RENEWAL with him.
