Board meets at Fort Caswell

Every year you elect men and women from churches across the state to represent you on the board of directors of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. That board meets three times annually to transact the convention’s business between our November annual meetings. Most of those meetings are held at Caraway Conference Center and Camp near Asheboro, since that location is in the center of the state.

But at least one time every four years, the board meets at the North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell. This is your beautiful coastal retreat on Oak Island that hosts more that 40,000 guests for retreats, conferences and meetings all year long.

I am writing this column from Fort Caswell where the board of directors met on Monday and Tuesday. This was an opportune time for them to meet on Oak Island again, since appropriate recognition could be given to Caswell’s director of 32 years, Rick Holbrook, who retires at the end of this month. The Biblical Recorder reported this news last month. We thank God for the excellent leadership Holbrook has given at Caswell. We also commit to pray for Caswell’s new director, Brian Hemphill.

Watch for stories about the board’s actions in next week’s print issue of the Biblical Recorder and at BRnow.org.

Continue to pray for the Southern Baptist Convention's annual meeting in Phoenix next month. If you are not able to attend, follow the Biblical Recorder's website and social media for news, updates and important information.

Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend.
