Committees of the Baptist State Convention are comprised of N.C. Baptists who serve and offer leadership, guidance and direction in a variety of areas related to convention ministry efforts.
The two standing committees of the Baptist State Convention are the committee on nominations and the committee on convention meetings. Following is a brief description of each committee and its duties.
Committee on Nominations
The 18-member committee on nominations has the primary responsibility to nominate individuals for election by the messengers during the annual meeting to serve on the board of directors, and the trustees and directors of the agencies and institutions of the convention. North Carolina Baptists are encouraged to prayerfully submit recommendations to the committee of individuals willing to serve in these important positions. Detailed information about the work of the committee is available in the convention bylaws. If you would like to nominate someone, please feel free to Make a Recommendation. Contact Gabe Magan if you have any questions.
Committee on Convention Meetings
The 18-member committee on convention meetings works with convention staff throughout the year to plan the program of the annual meeting, which is held each November. The committee gives prayerful attention to the theme and the worship focus of the annual meeting. The committee may bring recommendations for individuals to preach the annual convention sermon up to two years in advance. Members of this committee are actively involved in the local arrangements for the meeting and serve on location during the annual meeting, as needed, in registration of messengers, counting of ballots, ushering and backstage assistance. Contact Joey Prince if you have any questions.
For more information on these committees, refer to the convention’s Bylaws.
