EDT search team still seeking input

October 3, 2020

The deadline for recommending candidates to be the state convention’s next leader has passed, but search committee chairman Noah Crowe continues to seek input from North Carolina Baptists.

Crowe, who serves as interim pastor at Peachtree Memorial Baptist Church in Murphy, said the search team’s meeting on Sept. 28 centered on defining the qualifications they are seeking among candidates to be the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s (BSCNC) executive director-treasurer.

The meeting occurred in conjunction with the BSCNC board of directors meeting the same day at Caraway Conference Center near Asheboro, N.C. The recommendation period ended Sept. 30.

Crowe told the Biblical Recorder in a phone interview that the nine-member committee sent letters to associational mission strategists across the state to solicit feedback about what they want to see in a convention leader. That message comes in addition to previous calls for input from a wide range of N.C. Baptists.

The committee requests that all communication about the search take place through a designated email address: [email protected].

“I am excited about the enthusiasm that seems to be around the process as people give us glowing nominations and people’s encouragement … people reminding me that they are praying for us,” Crowe said. “That’s exciting to me that God by His Spirit is going to unify the convention and not divide us.”

The search committee’s next meeting is slated for Oct. 19 at Caraway Conference Center.

Living in the Bible Belt doesn’t make you a Christian

I grew up in the Bible Belt. In those days, almost nobody worked on Sundays. We prayed before class, ball games and meals — even in the name of Jesus — whether we believed it or not. We proudly displayed the Ten Commandments in our courthouses — whether we obeyed them or not....
