Committee extends deadline to make nominations

March 6, 2019

The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s (BSCNC) Committee on Nominations has voted to extended the deadline to submit recommendations for individuals to serve in various leadership roles with the state convention.

Recommendations will now be accepted until Monday, March 25, 2019 for terms of service that will begin in 2020. Recommendations may be made for individuals to serve on the BSCNC’s Board of Directors, other convention committees, and boards of the convention’s institutions and agencies, which include the Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina, the Biblical Recorder, N.C. Baptist Hospital and the N.C. Baptist Foundation.

“Recommendations of North Carolina Baptists for places of service and leadership in denominational work are essential for ongoing missions, ministries and evangelistic endeavors,” said Brian Davis, BSCNC’s associate executive director-treasurer.

Convention officials desire to see a broad representation of N.C. Baptists nominated to serve in various capacities. Recommendations are sought from churches of all sizes and geographic locations.

Convention officials also desire a diverse pool of nominees, which includes pastors, laity, men, women and individuals from different ethnicities.

Individuals may only occupy one place of service per term, and no more than six members of any one church may collectively serve at any one time on all boards and committees. Only one individual from an N.C. Baptist church may serve on the BSCNC’s Board of Directors.

Questions may be directed to Cynthia King at (800) 395-5102 or [email protected].
