The Baptist General Convention of Texas Executive Board will vote later this week on a nominee for interim executive director.
BGCT Executive Board directors learned Dec. 17 they would receive background information on a candidate for interim executive director, as well as information about how the e-mail balloting would take place. Voting begins Dec. 20 and will continue until a decision is made.
If elected, the interim will serve until a new executive director of the BGCT Executive Board assumes the post.
BGCT Executive Board Chairman John Petty called the interim executive director candidate “a worthy choice.”
“The executive committee (of the board) is unanimous in its recommendation of this candidate,” he said.
Ken Hugghins, chairman of the BGCT executive director search committee, said his committee is completing the first round of interviews and has begun the second round with some candidates.
In the event a nominee is brought forward and approved in January, it is unlikely the person would assume the position before current Executive Director Charles Wade retires Jan. 31. The nominee likely would need to give a current employer several weeks notice and take a couple of weeks to relocate, Hugghins noted.
