JESUPThe Christian Index has learned that Jack Lee, pastor of Altamaha Baptist Church, will be nominated for vice president of the Georgia Baptist Convention.

Under the leadership of Lee, who has served as pastor of Altamaha for 17 years, the church has become a leader in missions giving with 20 percent of its undesignated receipts going to the Cooperative Program.

The Altamaha pastor recently commented, “The Cooperative Program allows any church regardless of its size to be involved in the Biblical mandate of missions from local to global. The Cooperative Program is a vehicle for which the gospel message travels. If the Cooperative Program was to cease the work of missions would immediately be restricted.”

Not only has Jack Lee been a faithful pastor, he has been active in Baptist life from the associational level to the national level. He has served in the Altamaha Baptist Association as the moderator and as the chairman of the executive committee.

On the state level, Lee has served as a member of the executive committee and the administrative committee. He has also served on the historical committee and has been the chairman of the budget planning committee.

On the national level Lee served on the Southern Baptist Convention committee on committees. His willingness to be used by God can be illustrated in a multiplicity of ways.

When asked about his heart’s desire for Georgia Baptists, Lee stated, “I would like to see a unified spirit of cooperation to bring revival from the smallest to the largest congregation. I am praying that every Georgia Baptist pastor will be renewed in God’s power, resulting in passionate preaching every Sunday to win the lost to Christ.

“I also want to see all of us supporting Thomas Hammond, our new Executive Director, with an openness to embrace new ideas in order to achieve success in carrying out the Great Commission and strengthening the Georgia Baptist family.”

Brad Waters, pastor of First Baptist Church of Hazlehurst, will nominate Lee at the upcoming Georgia Baptist Convention annual meeting in Warner Robins on Nov. 13.
