elected officers all indicate they will be candidates for re-election at the

Nov. 8-10 annual meeting.

President Ed Yount has been

pastor of Woodlawn Baptist Church in Conover for 18 years. He has an extensive

background in state and national Baptist leadership. He chaired the Giving

Plans study Committee in 2008 that recommended a return to a single Cooperative

Program giving plan among North Carolina Baptist churches, which has been in

effect since Jan. 1.

Yount is a graduate of

Lenoir-Rhyne University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Mark Harris, first vice

president, is pastor of First Baptist Church in Charlotte five years and is a

current member of the Biblical Recorder board of directors. He has been board

chair at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Second vice president C. J.

Bordeaux, pastor of Gorman Baptist Church in Durham, once a vocal critic of the

Baptist State Convention, said his service on the Board of Directors 1999-2003

educated him.

“We’re doing a lot of good things

as North Carolina Baptists,” he said last year. “We’ve got a good state, and I

enjoy being involved.”
