Executive Director Search Committee now accepting nominations

by Texas Baptists Communications on January 12, 2023 in News

The Executive Director Search Committee is now accepting nominations for the next executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT). Nominations will be accepted until Jan. 31, 2023.

Per the new search prospectus and job description posted to the Texas Baptists website, the next executive director will provide the comprehensive spiritual, visionary, relational and organizational leadership necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the BGCT’s mission. The search committee is seeking an individual who is an active member in good standing of a Baptist church and who is capable of serving ably as the Christ-centered spiritual leader of the BGCT.

Nominators will need to provide information about themselves and the nominee, including church membership and affiliation status, as well as a description of why they believe their candidate would be fit for the role.

Following the Jan. 31 deadline, the committee will begin a confidential review of the candidates. Nominees will be informed of their nomination and asked to provide additional information about themselves, including verifying their contact information, completing a formal application for the position and submitting their current professional resume.

A full job description, information about the nomination process and search committee updates can be found at txb.org/edsc. Nominations may be sent to search[at]texasbaptists.org.

The search committee was formed in July 2022 following former Executive Director David Hardage’s retirement announcement. David Mahfouz, pastor of First Baptist Church in Warren, serves as committee chair.

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.

The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
