The Executive Committee

usually meets eight times a year and acts for the Board of Directors. The Committee is comprised of 20 members and serves as the policy, planning and personnel committee.


The Executive Committee is to the Board of Directors what the Board is to the Convention, transacting all regular business in between the three sessions of the Board. The Executive Committee has the responsibility to review, amend if necessary and approve the Cooperative Program Missions Budget prepared by the Budget Special Committee prior to presentation to the Board in September. Final adoption of the budget, by a vote of the messengers, takes place during the Annual Meeting.

The Executive Committee is as follows:

  • 2 officers of the Board (who fill the roles of chair and vice chair of the Executive Committee)
  • 3 officers of the BSCNC (president, first vice president, second vice president)
  • 9 committee chairs
  • 4 at-large members of the Board (elected during January meeting of the Board)
  • 1 president of North Carolina Baptist Men
  • 1 president of the North Carolina Baptist Associational Missions Conference
