ALEXANDRIA – The administrative committee of the Louisiana Baptist Convention Executive Board unanimously approved Steve Horn as the nominee for executive director of the state convention.
The vote moved forward the LBC presidential search committee’s recommendation of Horn, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Lafayette, during a special called meeting. The nomination will be voted on by the full Executive Board during its regularly scheduled spring meeting, May 7, at the Tall Timbers Camp and Conference Center in Woodworth.
If elected, Horn will replace David Hankins, who is officially retiring from the position June 30.
Horn has served as pastor of First Lafayette since 2005 and has been a prominent Louisiana Baptist and Southern Baptist leader over the years, most notably as president of the LBC from 2014-15, president of the LBC Executive Board from 2010-11 and, currently, as trustee of Louisiana College and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
