The search for the next national representative is well under way. Recently the Council of Eighteen met at the Regular Baptist Ministries Resource Center and discussed the progress of the search. David Strope, chairman of the Council of Eighteen search committee, reported to the Regular Baptist Ministries staff that candidates will be interviewed in the next few months. He anticipates that a candidate will be presented to the voting guests at the 2018 GARBC Conference at Hamilton Hills Church, Fishers, Indiana, June 26–29. The offices of national representative and Council of Eighteen members are elected by vote of delegates from GARBC churches at the association’s annual conference.
