Albany -- There is a controversial Baptist gathering in Atlanta next week. And a lot of Southern Baptist ministers won't be there.
Up to 20,000 white, African-American, and Latino Baptists are expected to attend and represent more than 20 million church members.
The meeting was organized by Jimmy Carter, who left the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.
The former president said he hopes the meeting will show the world that Christians of every political, racial and national persuasion can worship and work together to address social needs.
The Reverend Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Convention is denouncing the meeting saying the get-together has a liberal slant.
The Pastor of Albany's First Baptist Church says he'll wait for the outcome.
"I think part of the hope is to bring some Baptist together from different walks of life. At this point we are just taking a wait-and-see attitude and approach to see how things go and go from there," said Dr. Butch Knight.
The gathering will be held in the state capitol from January 30 to February first.
Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and former president Bill Clinton will speak at the event.
