SBTC search committee accepting resumes for executive director

Following the Nov. 11 announcement by Jim Richards of his plan to step down from his role as executive director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention by the end of 2021, the convention’s executive board chairman announced the search committee that will nominate to the executive board a candidate to fill the office of executive director. 

The committee met Nov. 11 and Chairman Mark Hogan of San Antonio later announced that the committee is seeking resumes for consideration. Individual members of the committee will not accept resumes; the committee has set up an email address,, for that purpose. All resumes should be submitted through this email address, and no later than Dec. 28, 2020.  

The search committee will post a monthly update to the convention website,, for the duration of the search process and invites SBTC churches to join them as they pray for God’s guidance in the search and for the man who will lead the convention as its second executive director. 

The committee consists of the executive board’s executive committee—Hogan, Caleb Turner of Mesquite, Todd Kaunitz of Longview, Nathan Lino of Humble, Robert Slavens of Houston and convention president Kie Bowman of Austin—and at-large members Loui Canchola of McAllen and Carol Yarber of Athens.
