Internet 'webcast' planned of SBC meeting, pastors' conference
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)--A live Internet "webcast" is
planned for the complete June 15-16 Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting and the
pre-convention Pastors' Conference, marking the first time full convention proceedings
have been available across the globe.
The webcast will be available through the SBC Executive
Committee's www.sbc.net site and the North American Mission Board's site, www.namb.net. It
is made possible in cooperation with NAMB's broadcast communications group, which provides
audio and video support for the convention each year.
Live coverage of the Tuesday sessions was offered last year, but
the coverage was extended this year "due to popular demand," according to Don
Magee of the SBC Executive Committee. Last year's coverage of the busiest day of the Salt
Lake City convention drew 2,275 visitors.
"Encourage your congregation to enjoy and experience as much
of the convention as possible by going to the Internet and listening to the live broadcast
or archived portions of this year's convention," Magee said. "Thanks to a
donation of skills and technology by OnePlace, Ltd., a Salem Communications Co., and
technical coordination by NAMB, you can see and/or listen to the convention live, or
retrieve segments of the convention when you get back home by going to the Internet
This year's SBC sessions will be archived on both sites for later
viewing, Magee said.
