North Carolina Baptists still have time to submit recommendations of people to serve on the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’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 North Carolina Baptists regarding nominations of individuals to serve is essential for the ongoing missions, ministries and disciple-making endeavors of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
BSC bylaws require the Committee on Nominations to recommend to the convention nominees from both small and large churches (over/under 400 members), limit churches to no more than six individuals from a single church serving on all convention boards and committees, and limit BSC Board of Director membership to one member from any church.
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 North Carolina Baptists to recommend more individuals to serve on the Board of Directors and convention committees.
Nominations are due January 31, 2014. Visit recommend.ncbaptist.org to make a nomination.
