BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — The executive board of the Tennessee Baptist Convention voted unanimously to accept a $9 million offer for the convention’s office space in Brentwood, Tenn., during a special called meeting May 17.
The executive board has been in its present location since 1969.
David Green, president of the executive board and pastor of First Baptist Church, Greeneville, said the meeting was historic for Tennessee Baptists.
The two buildings which comprise the Baptist Center (the original structure and the conference center added in 1989) along with 5.25 acres will be purchased by Franklin Land Associates LLC.
Relocation plans for the convention were not announced.
