NASHVILLE (BP)—The LifeWay Christian Resources presidential search committee is accepting nominations for a successor to Thom Rainer.

The search committee met Sept. 24 to develop a process for their search of the new LifeWay president and CEO, Chairman Kent Dacus announced.

The committee, which is accepting nominations at LifeWayCEO@carterbaldwin.com, will work with the executive search firm CarterBaldwin to identify potential candidates.

Dacus asked Southern Baptists to continue to pray for the committee as members seek God’s guidance in choosing LifeWay’s next leader.

“We do not take our task lightly,” Dacus said. “It is a tremendous responsibility God and the trustee board have placed on the search committee.

“We are seeking God’s wisdom and direction as we look for an individual who will lead LifeWay into the future. We would ask Southern Baptists to pray for the committee as well as for the individual whom God has prepared to lead LifeWay.”

On Aug. 27, LifeWay President and CEO Thom S. Rainer announced his plans to retire in the coming year after 13 years in leading the Southern Baptist Convention entity. A seven-person search committee was named to find LifeWay’s next leader during the trustees’ Aug. 27-28 meeting in Nashville.
