Dozens of Southern Baptist megachurch pastors and their wives met with Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials on Wednesday to cap off the annual Southern Baptist Convention MegaMetro retreat.
Organized by former SBC President and Arkansas pastor Ronnie Floyd, as many as 68 megachurch pastors and 65 of their wives traveled to the nation's capital on Monday to partake in the annual invite-only retreat, which was attended only by pastors with Sunday church attendance of 2,000-plus.
The conference concluded on Wednesday with as many as 116 of the pastors and their wives visiting the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, located next to the White House, to participate in a 90-minute White House senior staff briefing.
The pastors' meeting with Pence comes as organizers are planning a potential meeting between Trump and over 1,000 evangelical pastors later this spring as the 2018 midterm elections get closer. Trump held a similar meeting in the months before the 2016 general election that was attended by over 900 Christian leaders in New York City.
