From the reporter's notebook
The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina's (BSC) board of directors met on Monday and Tuesday of this week at Caraway Conference Center in Sophia, N.C. It was an encouraging time. Several conversations I had with board members gravitated toward church revitalization, a needed discussion among our churches today.

The board took up several action items during the meeting. Here are a few:

1) The board voted to approve a policy that creates a process for removing convention leaders due to "serious misconduct." The policy is based on bylaw changes that were approved at the 2019 BSC annual meeting.

2) The board heard a financial report from convention staff on the Cooperative Program budget and N.C. Missions Offering. Cooperative Program funds for 2019 were up 5 percent over the previous year, but came in around 6 percent behind budget.

3) The board took up a handful of committee appointments and elections.

Be sure to visit in the coming days to find out more.

As always, our staff is here to help your church find the information and inspiration it needs to be an active partner in the Great Commission!
