Southern Baptist Convention
SBC16 | Ted Traylor | Convention Sermon
Season 5, Episode 2 • 33m
Having served as pastor of Olive Baptist Church since 1990, Pastor Traylor’s heart is to develop fully devoted followers of Jesus. His bold and practical preaching brings listeners to a fresh understanding of the Bible and challenges Christians to become bondservants for Christ. His greatest ministry honor is serving the Olive family and Pensacola community.
A lifelong enthusiastic sports fan, Pastor Traylor’s coaching style of leadership allows teams to develop their spiritual gifts as they serve in joy. Mentoring and training young pastors is a particular passion, as he teaches in various conferences through the year. To deliver the consistent message of knowing Christ and making Him known is the heartbeat of all he does.
Pastor Traylor is known for his uncompromising stand on Biblical issues and strong defense of the Christian faith. In addition to serving as First Vice-President of the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000 and President of the Florida Baptist Convention in 1995, Dr. Traylor was President of the Southern Baptist Convention’s 2004 Pastors’ Conference, 2010 Pensacola Bay Baptist Association moderator, and was part of the 2010 Great Commission Resurgence Task force team. Currently Dr. Traylor is a speaker for NAMB’s Who’s Your One conferences and proud to serve on the Fellowship of Christian Athletes board for the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!).
Pastor Traylor’s proudest accomplishment is his family. He has been married to his beautiful wife, Liz, for forty-three years. They have two children, Rachel and Bennett, and are enjoying life with the world’s cutest granddaughters, Kathryn and Elizabeth.
