From wire reports
May 13, 2009

Fourteen North Carolina Baptists, including two from the

same church, have been appointed or nominated to serve on Southern Baptist

Convention (SBC) committees or boards.

Cindy Stevens of Cross Culture Church in Raleigh and Kenny

Chinn of Northside Church in Wilmington were appointed to the SBC Committee on

Committees by SBC President Johnny Hunt. The committee has 70 members, two from

each of the 35 state or regional conventions qualified for representation on

boards of SBC entities. Stevens is vice president of the Baptist State

Convention’s Board of Directors.

The Committee on Committees will meet in Louisville, Ky.,

just prior to the SBC’s June 23-24 annual meeting. The committee will nominate

members of the Committee on Nominations who, in turn, nominate trustees to

serve on boards of the various entities of the SBC. SBC Bylaw 19 also provides

that the Committee on Committees “shall nominate all special committees

authorized during the sessions of the Convention not otherwise provided for.”

Nine members of N.C. Baptist churches, including two from

Parkwood Baptist Church in Gastonia, are being nominated by this year’s

Committee on Nominations to serve on various boards.

The nominees will serve if elected by the messengers to the

annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention, June 23-24 in Louisville,

Ky.

Jeff Watson, a layperson and member of Center Grove Baptist

Church, Clemmons, has been nominated for a four-year term on the SBC Executive

Committee. He will replace Eddie Ferguson of Henderson, who is ineligible for

re-election.

Also nominated to the Executive Committee for a term to

expire in 2013 is Bryan (Scott) Davis, pastor of Pitts Baptist Church in

Concord. He will replace Paul Stam of Apex, who declined a second term. Stam is

House minority leader in the N.C. legislature.

George Walker of Greensboro is being nominated for a second

term on the Guidestone Financial Resources board.

Jeff Long, pastor at Parkwood, is nominated for a four-year

term on the International Mission Board (IMB). He would replace Bill Sanderson

of Wendell, who is ineligible for re-election.

Rick Byrd of Summerfield has been nominated for a second

term on the IMB board.

David Horner, pastor of Providence Baptist Church in

Raleigh, has been nominated to replace John Biggs of Raleigh on the LifeWay

Christian Resources board. His term will expire in 2013.

Charles Jacumin, pastor of Bay Leaf Baptist Church in

Raleigh, is nominated for a five-year term on the Southeastern Baptist

Theological seminary board. He will replace Mark Harris, pastor of First

Baptist Church, Charlotte, who is ineligible for re-election.

Don Warren, a member of Parkwood, has been nominated to

replace Jack Fallaw of Charlotte on Southeastern’s board. His term will expire

in 2014.

R. Shawn Dobbs, pastor of Edgewood Baptist Church,

Winston-Salem, has been nominated for a five-year term at Golden Gate Baptist

Theological Seminary. He would replace Clarence Johnson, Matthews who is

ineligible for re-election.

Three N.C. Baptists have been named by Hunt to serve on two

other committees during the SBC meeting.

Homer Murdock of Hopewell Baptist Church in Morganton will

serve on the Credentials Committee.

Marcus Redding of Hull’s Grove Baptist in Vale and Scott
