In October of last year, it was announced that prominent Southern Baptist president, H.B. Charles, intended to nominate seminary president, Al Mohler for the next president of the denomination. Mohler, who currently presides over the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is arguably the most influential person in the entire denomination, accepted the offer to be nominated and most Southern Baptists believe he’s likely a shoo-in.

The denomination is currently divided over politics, feminism, and a lack of commitment to biblical sufficiency and authority and many had hoped that Mohler would be the one to bring unity back. Mohler is well-known because of his prominence in the “conservative resurgence” that brought the denomination back to a more conservative position on issues of theology and culture. Al Mohler is also largely behind the creation of the convention’s official statement of faith known as the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

Many, however, are skeptical of Mohler’s commitment to social and theological conservatism and have accused him of being the cause of the denomination’s current state of disunity. Some of the most prominent agitators of racial disunity are protégés of Mohler including Ethics and Religious Liberty head, Russell Moore as well as some of his seminary professors.

Now, several Southern Baptist pastors, missionaries, and other leaders signed a joint statement announcing their intention to nominate Randy Adams, the head of the Northwest Baptist Convention, to run against Al Mohler for the next president. The announcement was first publicly made on Twitter by Blake Gideon, pastor of First Baptist Church, Edmond and a former trustee of the North American Mission Board who stated, “
