A pastor and layperson are Louisiana’s representatives to the 2015 Southern Baptist Convention Committee on Committees.
SBC President Ronnie Floyd announced recently that Stewart Holloway, pastor of First Baptist Church in Pineville, and Diane Nix, a layperson from First Baptist Church in Covington, were among the members of the committee.
Floyd, pastor of Cross Church, in Springdale, Ark., 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 June 16-17 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.
