VBHS was present at the annual meeting of the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV), Nov. 13-15, in Hampton, Virginia. Nathan Taylor and Fred Anderson offered a reflection on Tuesday evening during the main program, remembering Virginia Baptists who have "Answered the Call." In addition, those gathered passed a resolution of commendation and gratitude for Anderson's many years of service.
Religious Liberty was the emphasis for the VBHS Annual Meeting on Tuesday, May 16 at River Road Church, Baptist, Richmond, VA. The keynote speaker was Amanda Tyler, J.D., executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty. Fred Anderson, set the historical context of Virginia Baptists in the struggle to secure religious liberty in the 18th century and the Society recognized the 18th century Virginia Baptist churches which are still in existence. At the meeting, Nathan Taylor was installed as new executive director, while Anderson was recognized for his many years of leadership by receiving the title director emeritus.
