COLUMBUS, OH (BP) — Georgia pastors Fred Evers and Jeremy Morton have been named by Southern Baptist Convention president Ronnie Floyd to serve on the SBC Committee on Committees at the upcoming annual meeting June 16-17.
Floyd, pastor of Cross Church in Springdale, AR, announced the appointments in accordance with SBC Bylaw 19, which calls for providing notice to Southern Baptists of the appointees no later than 45 days in advance of each year’s Convention.
The Committee on Committees will assemble in Columbus just prior to the SBC’s annual meeting to nominate members of the Committee on Nominations who, in turn, nominate trustees for the boards of SBC entities. 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.”
The Committee on Committees has 68 members, two from each of the 34 states and regions qualified for representation on boards of SBC entities. Bryan Smith, pastor of First Baptist Church, Roanoke, VA, will serve as chairman.
