Re: Nomination for President and Vice Presidents for the Baptist World Alliance, 2020-2025

We greet you in the name of Jesus Christ! It is a tremendous blessing to see the incredible growth the Baptist family is experiencing at a global level. We are grateful for the strong hand of the Lord in many places around the world. Thank you for your faithful service. We are praying for you and praying that the Lord will raise up leaders who will continue to shape the contours of global Baptist life. For this, we need your help.

As we approach the midway point in this 2015-2020 period, we write to invite your participation in the BWA Officers nominating process for the upcoming quinquennium.

Every five years, we elect new BWA Officers and ask them to serve for the succeeding five-year period starting at the end of a Baptist World Congress. We are grateful to God for those who have been gifted, called and chosen to serve as officers of the organization. We are greatly indebted to them for the service they have rendered as servants of Christ. It is now time to begin the process of discerning those similarly endowed to serve the worldwide Baptist family over the 2020-2025 period. Please find attached the forms and guidelines for nominating persons for the positions of BWA President and Vice President.
