North Carolina Baptists still have time to submit recommendations of people to serve on the Baptist State Convention’s (BSC
) Board of Directors, the boards of the convention’s agencies and institutions, and convention committees.
The convention’s Committee on Nominations seeks diversity among the recommendations that will represent churches of various sizes, various professional and educational backgrounds, ethnic and racial diversity, geographical areas, different age groups, and lay persons as well as ministers.
Input from N.C. Baptists regarding nominations of individuals to serve is essential for the ongoing missions, ministries and evangelistic endeavors of the Baptist State Convention of N.C.
BSC bylaws require the following of the Committee on Nominations:
Recommend to the convention nominees from both small and large churches (under/over 400 members)
Limit churches to no more than six individuals from a single church serving on all convention boards and committees combined
Limit BSC Board of Director membership so that no more than one member from a church may serve on the Board at a time
An individual may only serve on a single committee or a single board at one time, whereas in the past individuals could serve in more than one place at one time. Therefore, it is essential for N.C. Baptists to recommend more individuals to serve on the Board of Directors and convention committees.
Nominations are due Jan. 31, 2013. To make a nomination, visit recommend.ncbaptist.org
