DENOMINATIONAL RELATIONS COMMITTEE

Our Denominational Relations Committee (DRC) has been charged with updating the church regarding denominational doctrinal issues and practices as they relate to our church’s current Statement of Faith and status as a Southern Baptist Church. The Committee is to make recommendations to the church regarding our future denominational involvement, including, but not necessarily limited to:
a. The use of denominational curriculum in various church education settings.
b. Allowing church members to designate a portion of their tithes and offerings to denominations (as well as the subsequent distribution of the church’s undesignated giving).
c. The promotion of specific denominational missions offerings.
d. Any other church policy or practice.

Consistent with the formation of the original Denominational Relations Committee, current committee members include: Deacon Chair, Deacon-Chair Elect, a past Deacon Chairman (who is serving as the Chairman of the Committee), Personnel Committee Chair, Finance Committee Chair, Missions Committee Chair, WMU Director, and three at large members chosen by the Deacon Chair.

Committee Members:
Dave Westberry, Chair (former Deacon Chair)
Lee Scarboro (current Deacon Chair)
Lee Vickery (Deacon Chair-Elect)
Steve Burgess (Finance Committee Chair)
Jim English (Personnel Committee Chair)
Donna Heald (WMU Coordinator)
Richard Tudor (Mission Committee Chair)
John Corven (at Large)

Our Committee goal, as with all things, is to honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, love one another, and move forward together to accomplish the mission of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) in the spirit of the Greatest Commandment (Matthew 22:37-40).
