As the SBTC’s 2020 Annual Meeting approaches, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding governances. We plan on following safety protocols including social distancing, providing face masks & hand sanitizing stations, reduced exhibitor and third party meal/event participation, use of container (box) meals only and an increased cleaning regimen throughout the event. Our prayer is that the messengers will come together for a time of worship, fellowship and to hear of the ministry work they are doing through their state convention.

Due to our constitution and bylaws, Annual Meeting must be held in person and we are excited to be hosted by Hyde Park Baptist Church in Austin this year.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding governances. We plan on following safety protocols including
- social distancing,
- providing face masks & hand sanitizing stations,
- reduced exhibitor and third party meal/event participation,
- use of container (box) meals only,
- increased cleaning regimen throughout the event.
We will also provide wristbands to help make others aware of your personal preferences for distancing or comfort interacting with others. Please watch via live stream if you are in a high-risk category or are experiencing any signs and symptoms typically associated with COVID-19 (fever, loss of taste or smell, difficulty breathing, fatigue, and others).
No, due to the difficulties related to the COVID-19 pandemic childcare is not provided this year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there are not large dinners or seminary breakfasts this year. For your convenience, you are able to purchase a dinner on Tuesday night and fellowship with the event and SBTC staff at the church. Details coming soon…
