Brief History & Past Presidents

The Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists has been in existence since 1959. Beginning with a meeting in Houston, Texas at a local cafeteria, a group of evangelists met and determined to develop an association of Southern Baptist Evangelists who could meet, work and fellowship together, as they sought to fulfill their calling in full-time, vocational evangelism.

Since then the group has been led by faithful men whose leadership, vision and purpose has been singular ~ to lift up and magnify the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to proclaim the Good News of Christ in communities across the United States and the world.

Following is a list of the past presidents of Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists. Further information and history are available through the Southern Baptist Historical Society and Archives in Nashville, Tennessee.
