49 Florida Baptists named to 2017 Committee on Nominations
2017 Committee on Nominations: A Committee on Nominations composed of pastors, laypersons and church staff has been appointed by the officers of the Florida Baptist State Convention. Stan Lewis, executive pastor of Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, was named to chair the 49-member committee.
The committee is made up of one member from each of the 49 associations in the state, plus three officers of the state convention who serve as ex officio members. The committee is responsible for nominating Florida Baptists to serve on the state convention’s boards and committees. Their nominations must be approved by messengers during the annual meeting of the Florida Baptist State Convention in November.
Any Florida Baptist can suggest persons to serve on the governing bodies by downloading nomination forms from the Florida Baptist Convention’s web site. The completed forms must be returned to Patty Vansant in the Office of Executive Director-Treasurer no later than June 30.
To meet guidelines set by the Bylaws of the Florida Baptist State Convention, persons who are recommended by June 30 will be sent a Nominee Qualifying Questionnaire which must be completed and returned by Aug.15 for committee consideration.
