Page names Committee on Committees

INDIANAPOLIS (BP)–Appointments to the Southern Baptist Convention’s Committee on Committees have been announced by SBC President Frank Page. Page, pastor of First Baptist Church in Taylors, S.C., announced the appointments in accordance with SBC Bylaw 19 which requires that their names be released to Baptist Press no later than 45 days prior to the annual meeting.

The Committee on Committees will assemble in Indianapolis just prior to the SBC’s June 10-11 annual meeting to nominate members of the Committee on Nominations, who, in turn, nominate trustees to serve on boards of the various entities of the SBC. SBC Bylaw 19 also provides that the Committee on Committees “shall nominate all special committees authorized during the sessions of the Convention not otherwise provided for.”

The Committee on Committees has 70 members, two from each of the 35 state or regional conventions qualified for representation on boards of SBC entities.
