Marvin Pittman, president of the State Board of Missions, said Sullivan' s tenure has been marked by a focus on three priorities: evangelism without apology, aggressive church starting and effective church and leadership development.
"John Sullivan does not believe he can effectively lead Florida Baptists from behind a desk in Jacksonville, and he has committed a majority of his calendar to being on the Florida mission field," said Pittman.

JACKSONVILLE (FBW)-Tim Maynard, current president of the State Board of Missions, will be nominated as president of the Florida Baptist State Convention in November, according to Bartow layman Marvin Pittman, who will nominate the Jacksonville pastor.
Pittman has worked with Maynard, pastor of Fruit Cove Baptist Church in Jacksonville, for the past three years on the State Board of Missions during Maynard's presidency of the group.
Pittman is a member of First Baptist Church in Bartow and senior chaplain in the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
MAYNARD "These three years have been a challenging time as the State Board, and the Convention, have dealt with recommendations emerging from the study of the [Imagine If] Great Commission [Resurgence] Task Force and adopted by the convention," Pittman said.
His leadership skills have been clearly evident," said Pittman, vice president of the State Board who has served as a member of the board two previous, three-year terms, 2000-2006.
Pittman said the State Board's "confidence" in Maynard was demonstrated in its extraordinary action to request an additional, one-year term for him to continue service on the body in order to continue to assist with the IIGCR implementation.
"By his speech, by his action, it is apparent that God has blessed him and his ministry as he has served his church and the Convention faithfully," Pittman said of Maynard.
"He is committed to the mission goals of the SBC by leading his church to engage in mission activities nationally and globally, to give ten percent of their undesignated funds to the Cooperative Program, and special gifts to Lottie Moon and other state and national mission offerings," Pittman said.
PITTMAN Calling Maynard a "model" of a "cooperating Southern Baptist/Florida Baptist pastor," Pittman said Maynard agreed to be nominated FBSC president only after receiving the support of his wife, Pamela, and his church.
"The Florida Baptist Convention is uniquely positioned to be a lighthouse of hope and help to the lost of our state and the Caribbean region with prayer and action," Pittman said. Southwest Florida's Information Leader, 23 Dec 2004 [cached]
It was erected Dec. 15 by Marvin Pittman, 66, a retired law enforcement officer and a member of the First Baptist Church of Bartow, and his Bible study group.They mounted it after county commissioners had earlier deadlocked on another church's request to permit such a display.
"The real spirit of Christmas is the birth of Christ," Pittman said after the meeting."We felt it needs to be in the public eye, so we did it."
Other displays are fine, too, he said, adding, "If somebody wants to do that, it's their right."
