SCBC Hosts Upstate Ministry Partner Trustee Orientation on Greer Campus

Tigerville, SC (February 7, 2020) In an agreement with its seven ministry partners, the South Carolina Baptist Convention (SCBC) has decided to hold annual trustee orientation meetings with the first one held at North Greenville University’s Tim Brashier Campus in Greer. Approximately 40 trustees from these organizations attended the Upstate orientation on Thursday, Feb. 6.  

"We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the leadership of the South Carolina Baptist Convention by hosting this strategic meeting on our Tim Brashier Campus in Greer. The sessions were quite helpful, emphasizing the mutual responsibility and callings that we share as stakeholders in the Kingdom work undertaken by these ministry partners," said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr.

The SCBC will also host identical meetings in the Midlands at the South Carolina Baptist Convention on Feb 18 and in the Low Country at Charleston Southern University on Feb 27.  The seven ministry partners are Anderson University, Baptist Foundation, Charleston Southern University, Connie Maxwell Children’s Home,  North Greenville University, SCBMA (Ministry on Aging), and The Baptist Courier.

“For some time, we have needed to have a type of orientation that would explain the relationship between ministry partners and the South Carolina Baptist Convention,” said SCBC Chief Administrative Officer Scott Lee.  “We are thrilled to see how God is moving in each of the entities and we want to make sure that those who help lead, understand the structure, history and responsibilities that are so important to the success of these efforts.”

The meetings are held in four parts which include SCBC Executive Director Dr. Gary Hollingsworth will explain the make-up of the Convention and their relationship to the ministry partners as well as how trustees are nominated and elected. Rev. Josh Powell, president of the SCBC and author of a book currently being written on South Carolina Baptist History, will take the trustees through an understanding of our heritage and a timeline of how we have evolved to what our Convention looks like today. James Jordan, an attorney with Guenther, Jordan and Price, P.C. will give a legal opinion on trustee responsibilities briefing, and the presidents of each ministry partner will have some one-on-one time with their specific trustees.
