Beam Named to SBC Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission

Tigerville SC (September 1, 2017) Dr. Tony Beam, vice president for student life and Christian worldview at North Greenville University, was named to the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission at the convention’s annual meeting in June.

The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) describes its mission as kingdom, culture, and mission. Its work is dedicated to engaging the culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and speaking to issues in the public square for the protection of religious liberty and human flourishing. 

“The Commission helps churches understand the moral demands of the gospel, apply Christian principles to moral and social problems and questions of public policy, and to promote religious liberty in cooperation with the churches and other Southern Baptist entities,” said Beam.

Beam’s name was submitted by the Southern Baptist Convention Nominating Committee and was approved by the Convention to represent South Carolina for a five-year term.  The Commission meets regularly throughout the year and maintains offices in Washington, DC, Nashville, TN, and a Middle Eastern bureau in Cyprus.

In addition to his role at NGU, Beam hosts his daily weekday morning talk show, “The Christian Worldview Today” on Christian Talk 660AM and 92.9FM. There, he gives listeners a Christ-centered look at national and local news.
