Ten-year-old Zak McCullar from First Baptist Church, Carbon Hill, has become popular among Baptists after his appearance at Southern Baptist Convention annual meetings two years in a row. During the June 2019 meeting in Birmingham, Zak joined Executive Committee President Ronnie Floyd on stage prior to messengers voting to add a Children’s Ministry Day to the SBC calendar the third Sunday in July through 2023. Zak introduced the motion to create the day at the 2018 annual meeting.
TAB News host Jennifer Rash sat down with Zak in the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex arena immediately following the closing of the 2019 annual meeting to learn more about him and his faith story. Listen in on the conversation as well as hear from Zak’s dad Scott, who serves as pastor of First Baptist, Carbon Hill, on this week’s TAB News.
Following the 28-minute interview, TAB staff members and correspondents will present an audio digest of this week’s issue including news, features, Dr. Batson’s Theology 101 column and Sunday School commentaries.
