Milton A. Hollifield Jr.
Milton A. Hollifield Jr. has served as the fourteenth executive director-treasurer of the BSCNC since April 11, 2006. He grew up as the son of a minister in the western North Carolina town of Swannanoa. He has been married to the former Gloria Sullins of Black Mountain since 1972. They have one son, a daughter-in-law and two grandsons. Milton received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Mars Hill University and a master of divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
After pastoring churches in Texas and North Carolina, Milton was called as executive director of missions for the Gaston Baptist Association in Gastonia, N.C. In 1993, the BSCNC General Board elected him as director of the BSCNC Evangelism Division. In 1998, Milton was named as executive leader for the Mission Growth Evangelism Group and served as state evangelism director and state missions director for North Carolina.
As executive director-treasurer, Milton's vision for North Carolina Baptists is that: “By God’s grace, the BSCNC will become the strongest force in the history of this Convention for reaching people with the message of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.” He has led the BSCNC to focus their energies around seven biblical concepts for a Christ-centered vision. They are: Practice fervent prayer; promote evangelism and disciple-making; strengthen existing churches; plant new multiplication churches; reach North Carolina’s international community; embrace unreached and unengaged people groups; and engage young church leaders.
