The 2020 North Carolina Pastors’ Conference has been canceled, according to president Ronnie Parrott, lead pastor of Christ Community Church in Huntersville, N.C.
The event was scheduled for Nov. 8 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, N.C., to occur in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
Convention staff announced Aug. 7 that the annual meeting will not be held at the Koury Convention Center due to ongoing uncertainties about large gatherings related to COVID-19. N.C. Baptist officials are in the process of exploring alternative options for this year’s annual meeting.
N.C. Pastors’ Conference officer elections usually take place two years in advance of the term. However, due to this year’s event cancelation, 2022 officer elections are now expected to occur at the 2021 N.C. Pastors’ Conference.
The event’s 2021 officers are president Roger Barnes, vice president Allen Murray, and treasurer John Campbell.
