The Executive Committee (EC) of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) met Thursday, August 16, via conference call for a brief meeting to hear and approve committee reports.
The EC approved the following recommendations from the Committee on Nominations related to appointments on the BSC Board of Directors: Russ Reaves, Immanuel Baptist Church, Piedmont Association, to fill the 2013 unexpired term of Doug Davis; Jonathan Boyd Sr., True Vine Restoration Ministries, Metrolina Association, to fill the 2015 unexpired term of Tim Jernigan; and Steve Williams, Pine Branch Baptist Church, Mitchell Association, to fill the 2014 unexpired term of Danny Hedgepeth.
The Committee on Nominations also recommended Jim Dyer, Christ Church in Raleigh, to fill the 2014 unexpired term of Wiley Doby on the Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina Board of Trustees.
Beverly Volz, BSC director of accounting services, brought the financial report. Cooperative Program receipts through July 31 total $17,062,713.26, which is 1.84 percent behind as compared to the same time last year.
Articles and Bylaws Committee chairman Bartley Wooten shared that the Committee recommends no proposed amendments to the BSCNC articles of incorporation, but will bring to the BSC Board of Directors in September three motions for proposed amendments to the bylaws.
The three motions will address the following: first, limitations for non-Board members of special Board committees to serve on other committees and boards; second, requirements of individuals who have been elected to serve full terms on Convention boards and committees, but did not serve the full term, in order that they may be considered for election to another term of service; and third, a change to reflect the title change of North Carolina Baptist Hospital’s School of Pastoral Prayer to the Division of Faith and Health Ministries.
The next EC meeting will be held Sept. 25 in conjunction with the BSC Board of Directors meeting Sept. 25-26 at Caraway Conference Center.
