The Rev. Fred Luter Jr., at podium, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, smiles while addressing the convention during its annual meeting Tuesday, June 10, 2014, in Baltimore. The Southern Baptists are electing a new president to succeed the Rev. Fred Luter Jr., who became the denomination's first African-American president in 2012. Contenders include the Rev. Dennis Kim, pastor of a Korean church in Silver Spring, Maryland, and the Rev. Ronnie Floyd, pastor of Cross Church, with several locations in northwest Arkansas. The Southern Baptist Convention is the nation's largest Protestant denomination, with 15.7 million members, but leaders are concerned about recent membership declines. (AP Photo/Steve Ruark)
