Serving as President of the Colorado Baptist Convention
I have so enjoyed serving as president of the Colorado Baptist Convention for the past 1 1/2 years! My second year term expires in October.
Recently, I had the joy of leading a meeting of the CBC Executive Board, which is comprised of 18 members from across the state, as well as other leaders who attend. We held our meeting for the first time at Ponderosa Retreat and Conference Center. Marcus Rawls and his staff were amazing hosts. Hopefully we can return next year.
The most important prayer request right now is the search for a new Executive Director for the Colorado Baptist Convention. After 17 years "at the helm," Dr. Mark Edlund is retiring, effective July 31, 2017. Please pray for the 7 member search team as they seek the person for this position. They are seeking a person with strong leadership skills, one who understands the culture of Colorado, and a person who is a visionary. These days are crucial for our convention, and the search team is earnestly seeking the right man for this position. So please pray for them!
