Executive Director Search Committee Update

ALBUQUERQUE (BNM) - The Baptist Convention of New Mexico’s Executive Director Search Committee has announced dates and locations for twelve associational listening sessions across the state.

New Mexico state Baptist associations will each host a meeting, with the exception of Eastern Baptist Association and Tucumcari Baptist Association, which will meet jointly. 

According to the search committee, the purpose of these meetings is to dialogue with New Mexican Baptists concerning the committee’s search for a new executive director and lead missionary of the BCNM.

In a written statement to the Baptist New Mexican, committee member Jonathan Richard, said:

 “The Baptist Convention of New Mexico’s Executive Director Search Team would like to hear from the churches of New Mexico. We have questions regarding our search to be answered anonymously and would like to hear any comments or questions that you may have. We have scheduled meetings with every association in order to have our questions answered and to give you an opportunity to speak with our team. These meetings are scheduled to last an hour only. We are looking forward to hearing from New Mexico Baptists.”
