Annuity Board expands service
in Texas with three representatives

DALLAS–The Annuity Board of the Southern Baptist Convention has tripled its staff devoted to helping Texas Baptist ministers and other clients of its retirement programs.

Previously, one area director related to the 5,700 congregations and 115 associations within the Baptist General Convention of Texas. Now, three area directors will share the responsibility.

Chris Elkins will work with churches and associations in the Panhandle and West Texas. His major cities include Abilene, Lubbock, Amarillo, El Paso, Brownwood and surrounding associations.

Elkins came to the Annuity Board in 1999 after serving on the staff of Southern Baptist churches in Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas.

Brad Thompson will serve churches and associations in South Texas. His region will include all churches and associations from San Antonio to Brownsville.

Thompson joined the Annuity Board staff in 1986 after serving as a missionary in Mexico City, on the staff of Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler and as the singles and married young adult consultant with the BGCT.

Mike Harris will assist churches and associations in Central and East Texas. His region will include the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex as well as Austin, Houston and East Texas.

Harris recently joined the Annuity Board staff after serving as a family financial planner the past five years. He also was the founding pastor in 1993 of Broadmoor Life Fellowship Church in Colorado Springs, Colo.
