The Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, in June, 1995, adopted the report of the Executive Committee’s Program and Structure Committee entitled, “Covenant for a New Century.” That report included an instruction that upon final approval of Bylaw 15 revisions by the SBC meeting in June, 1996, the Executive Committee of the SBC should implement the changes required by the Covenant for a New Century, including all legal and organizational revisions, according to a Transition Plan to be reported to the 1996 SBC. The aim of the implementation was to insure that the new structure would be in place and functioning by the close of the SBC annual meeting in June, 1997. In its September, 1995 meeting, the SBC Executive Committee appointed a 10-member Implementation Task Force. The Task Force’s report addressed legal issues, cost/benefit analysis, personnel issues, ministry assignments, and a time line for implementation for SBC commissions impacted by the Covenant for a New Century. These recommendations were presented at the SBC annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, in June, 1996. The Transition Plan is any word searchable.
