Item 1: The Presidential Election

by Dave Miller on June 10, 2014 · 28 comments

The scheduled time for the presidential election this morning is 10:30 AM. That is a change from previous conventions – the first election was always after lunch. But all the elections will be today.

Ronnie Floyd is still the expected winner of the election, but there is a lot of Dennis Kim buzz around. Just don’t know it will all play out. As far as I know, there are still just the three who will be nominated.

I plan to update this post with news as the election progresses.

Praying God’s will and a good convention. First choice for me would be Jared Moore and then Dr. Kim.

Wish I could be there to vote for Kim!


3 Dave Miller June 10, 2014 at 10:39 am

Vote going now. @sbcvoices for updates.


4 Joseph Spurgeon June 10, 2014 at 10:57 am

what time do they usually announce these results


5 Dave Miller June 10, 2014 at 11:03 am

Unknown. You just sit and wait


6 Joseph Spurgeon June 10, 2014 at 11:09 am

is it usually the same day or in the afternoon?


7 Doug Hibbard June 10, 2014 at 11:57 am

Same day, during the next relevant ‘business section.’

(They usually won’t interrupt something like IMB to announce vote counts.)


8 Thomas Magers II June 10, 2014 at 11:08 am

All three nomination speeches were good for various reasons.

If not before, you will hear the results of the presidential election at the time for the next election of officers.

Which should be at 12:04 pm Eastern, if the posted schedule is followed.

Results expected soon.


12 Dave Miller June 10, 2014 at 12:13 pm

Total votes (5001 registered) – 3553

Ronnie Floyd – 1834 51%

Dennis Kim – 1446

Jared Moore – 210

Congratulations Ronnie Floyd.


13 John Wylie June 10, 2014 at 12:18 pm

Wow, Dr. Kim actually came pretty close.


14 Greg Harvey June 10, 2014 at 12:34 pm

I hope after Floyd’s term(s) Kim’s name comes up again. That would be outstanding.

As I’ve noted several times, I think there were uniques for each candidate that made their candidacy both interesting and to a certain extent compelling. I’m not surprised that Jared polled so few, but there are things that he is saying that deserve discussion and I believe he has correctly raised those issues and sought to discuss them.

This was a VERY good year for us with respect to the selection of a president because of these things (obligatory IMHO implied, but just in case you think you need one, there you go).


15 John Wylie June 10, 2014 at 12:41 pm

I agree with everything you said Greg. I would have preferred Dr. Kim to have won, but all in all, I’m pleased with the strong showing he made today.


16 Louis Cook June 10, 2014 at 12:51 pm

Why would about 2,000 Messengers abstain from voting?


17 John Wylie June 10, 2014 at 1:36 pm

Some were in the exhibit hall, some were at lunch, some will never attend any of the business sessions.


18 Christiane June 10, 2014 at 2:16 pm

if they are appointed messengers, don’t they have a moral (and spiritual) obligation to attend on behalf of those who sent them as representatives



19 D. L. Payton June 10, 2014 at 1:50 pm

John is spot on with his analysis. Some people really do not care who is president for various reasons


20 Joseph Spurgeon June 10, 2014 at 2:01 pm

Is seems like that if your church sends you as a messenger to the convention it would be a dereliction of duty to not attend any of the business sessions and to not vote.


21 D. L. Payton June 10, 2014 at 9:57 pm

You make a good point. I guess people see this differently. Personally I always attended the business because i wanted to keep up and have a voice. Some people say they go for the preaching, fellowship or whatever.

I suppose the bottom line would be a pastor’s understanding with his church. If the church knows the attendance pattern of the pastor and is OK with it I suspect that would be their business.

22 Dave Miller June 10, 2014 at 2:12 pm

Clint Pressley was elected 1st VP without opposition. 2nd VP Was also Unopposed. I think the name was Hans Dilbeck or Bilbeck. Maybe someone has the name.


23 Nick Horton June 10, 2014 at 2:25 pm

Hance Dilbeck.


24 Tarheel June 10, 2014 at 3:13 pm

Is the 2nd vp a snazzy dresser too?? ;-)


25 Greg Harvey June 10, 2014 at 3:30 pm

Are you asking “Will Dave lend his suit to any 2nd VP who asks?”


26 Doug Hibbard June 10, 2014 at 5:38 pm

If so, then I’m going to Columbus next year and expect somebody to nominate me for 2 VP. I’ll wear the suit.


27 Louis June 11, 2014 at 1:48 pm

I voted for Kim but believe Floyd will do a great job.


28 Tarheel June 11, 2014 at 10:02 pm

I expect so too, Louis.
