Edgar Aponte

Vice President of Mobilization, International Mission Board

Edgar Aponte, who currently serves as director of Hispanic leadership development and instructor of theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina, was affirmed by trustees as vice president of mobilization. He and his wife, Sara, are members of Christ Covenant Church in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Prior to his work at SEBTS, Aponte served as the ministry of foreign affairs in Washington, D.C., on behalf of his home nation, the Dominican Republic. His role of minister counselor in the political section involved coordinating the political relations between the embassy and the State Department, Department of Labor, U.S. Congress and Department of Defense; advising the ambassador and authorities on a broad range of policy issues from the bilateral agenda; and engaging in meetings with other embassies and interest groups about specific regional issues such as human trafficking and drug trafficking. Prior to that, he worked in banking for five years. More...

“Over the course of prayerful conversations with Edgar, we believe that he is the right person to serve IMB as vice president of mobilization,” Platt told trustees, noting Aponte’s desire to mobilize the Church in the United States for the spread of the gospel to the nations.

The vice president of mobilization leads in three significant ways: 1.) He works with other executive leaders in the overall strategy of the IMB with particular emphasis on the board’s mobilization efforts. 2.) He leads teams and networks to mobilize churches in sending limitless missionary teams who are making disciples and multiplying churches among unreached people and places for the glory of God. 3.) He leads at the denominational level in developing relationships and communicating who IMB is to the entire SBC eco-system, while at the same time representing those diverse audiences back to IMB. This involves leading IMB to serve alongside state conventions, associations, SBC entities and other stateside partners.

“Edgar Aponte is an incredibly gifted man of God,” said Danny Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. “The Lord has blessed him with a wide range of abilities and talents. He excels at whatever he does. This is a sad day for Southeastern and me personally. However, it is a great day for the IMB and the advancement of the Kingdom of King Jesus among the nations. He goes to our very close sister entity with my blessing and prayers. This is a great thing for Southern Baptists.”

“I know Edgar Aponte to be a man of humility, purity, and that’s teachable,” said Johnny Hunt, senior pastor of First Baptist Church Woodstock in Woodstock, Georgia, and a former SBC president. “Combine these traits, and you have one wonderful man of God. This is who I know Dr. Aponte to be! I am elated for our IMB and their selection of my dear friend. All will be blessed.”
