The Louisiana Baptist Convention’s Executive Director Search Committee is receiving nominations for a successor to David Hankins, who has announced his retirement effective June 30, 2019, having led the convention since 2005.
Search committee chairman Waylon Bailey, pastor of First Baptist Church in Covington and chairman of the convention’s Executive Board, said in a news release the process for recommending candidates, or for interested individuals to apply, entails sending names and resumes to [email protected] or, via mail to Dr. Waylon Bailey, c/o First Baptist Church, 16333 Hwy. 1085, Covington, LA 70433.

Bailey was elected as the search committee’s chairman during its inaugural meeting Nov. 27 when the 15-member committee began developing a profile of the type of candidate they are seeking to lead Louisiana Baptists.
“We want to do our very best for the future of our state,” Bailey said. “Our state needs Louisiana Baptists in order to be its very best.”
