About » Our Leadership

Our Leadership

Those who serve in leadership positions are enlisted by the Council Development Committee and elected annually at the General Assembly.

The Councils meet together on the same day four times per year. A portion of these "All Councils" gatherings are spent meeting together and a portion are spent meeting separately. They hold additional individual council meetings as needed, including monthly conference calls for some of the councils.

Councils often form teams or task forces that include additional persons and focus on a particular ministry, mission or task. If you would be interested in serving on a team or task force in a particular ministry area or if you are interested in exploring service on a council, please email Larry Hovis at lhovis@cbfnc.org, Rick Jordan at rjordan@cbfnc.org or Linda Jones at ljones@cbfnc.org.
