Voddie Baucham at the 2013 Founders Breakfast

Every year at the meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention Founders Ministries hosts a breakfast featuring a speaker, free books, fellowship and encouragement for those attending the convention and those who live in the area. This year's breakfast features Dr. Voddie Baucham, who will speak on "The Reformation We Need."

Voddie and family at one of their six adoption finalizations
Voddie is no stranger to most Southern Baptists. His is a widely-read author, a world-renown speaker, church planting pastor, a fiercely devoted, adoptive parent and a husband who out-married himself by a long shot. What you may not know about Voddie is that he is also a championship fighter who is training in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. With an gold medal at the Houston International Open, he now has his sights set on a Pan Am and possibly world championship.

I wouldn't bet against him.

Gives a whole new meaning to "Bad Voddie"
Voddie has been an unapologetic fighter for the cause of God and truth for more than twenty years. He has championed biblical teaching on manhood, marriage and fatherhood while standing firmly in the same historic, confessional and baptistic stream of the faith that also includes such notable Christian leaders as Andrew Fuller, William Carey, Adoniram Judson, Charles Spurgeon, James Boyce, Basil Manly, Sr. (and Jr.) and John Broadus.

If you are anywhere in the Houston area on June 11, 2013, you should plan to come hear him speak at the Founders Breakfast. The breakfast will be held at the

George R. Brown Convention Center
Room 352 D/E/F, Level 3

Tickets are $25. Register before May 15 for a $5 discount. Registration deadline is May 30. It is not unusual for the breakfast to sell out, so register early.

He is not only an adoptive parent, but a homeschooling one as well.
