Deadline extended to recommend individuals to serve

March 2, 2021

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

Recommendations will now be accepted until Monday, April 12, 2021, for terms of service that will begin in 2022. The former deadline was Jan. 31.

Recommendations may be made for individuals to serve on the BSCNC’s board of directors, convention committees, and boards of the convention’s institutions and agencies, which include the Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina, the Biblical Recorder, the N.C. Baptist Foundation, and N.C. Baptist Hospital.

“The committee is pleased to be able to offer additional time for North Carolina Baptists to recommend qualified individuals to serve in convention leadership,” said committee chairman Dustin Mace, who serves as senior pastor of Buffalo Baptist Church of Shelby. “Because N.C. Baptist churches are diverse, we seek leadership that reflects this diversity.”

Mace said the committee desires 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. The committee also desires a diverse pool of recommendations that includes pastors, laity, men, women, and individuals from different racial and ethnic backgrounds.

“We are calling on N.C. Baptists to prayerfully and thoughtfully submit recommendations,” Mace said. “The committee thanks you in advance, and we commit to seek our Lord’s guidance as we review your recommendations and make our nominations.”

Individuals may occupy only 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 any N.C. Baptist church may serve on the BSCNC’s board of directors.

Messengers attending this year’s N.C. Baptist annual meeting in November will formally vote on those nominated to serve by the committee.

Questions about making a recommendation or the recommendation process may be directed to Angela Kilby at (919) 459-5504 or [email protected].

The power of a name: God’s faithfulness in mental health
