Baptist Convention Comes to Town

Members of the largest Baptist group in Texas will be setting up shop in Amarillo.

For the next two days representatives from more than 57 hundred churches will be in town for the annual Baptist General Convention.

This year could be a historic one for the group as they could elect their first female president...

Though there is some opposition... She is running against the Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Canyon for the job.

If you would like to attend the convention it will be at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum beginning at 8am.
