The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Arkansas has named Arkansas native and recent George W. Truett Theological seminary graduate Megan Pike as the organization’s first assistant coordinator.
Pike, whose husband, Marty, serves as minister of children and youth at Pulaski Heights Baptist Church in Little Rock, Ark., will work half-time as point person for communications, missions and the young leaders ecosystem for the statewide affiliate of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship based in Decatur, Ga.
“This is an exciting new season for CBF Arkansas,” said CBF Arkansas Coordinator Ray Higgins. “Megan brings global involvement, a vibrant seminary education, along with practical leadership experiences in the church, non-profit organizations, community missions and collegiate ministry to her work with us.”
Pike is a native of Mountain Home, Ark., and graduate of Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Ark., with a degree in sports/community recreation. She worked previously on the staff of Mission Waco Mission World, with Baylor University Campus Recreation, Waco Habitat for Humanity and Baylor Missions. She was active in Waco’s Calvary Baptist Church, where she was a CBF collegiate congregational intern and later the minister of community missions.
She has been working with CBF Arkansas as a program and communications consultant since April.
