Board of Directors

Baptist News Global is governed by an autonomous Board of Directors composed of laypersons and clergy who represent a cross-section of mainstream Baptist life. Each member is a committed volunteer who supports Baptist News Global financially, advocates for the unique role of Baptist News Global as an independent, nonprofit religion news organization, and invests his or her energy, creativity, skills and experience in the faithful stewardship of the mission of Baptist News Global. Members serve without compensation or reimbursement for travel and meeting expenses. The size of the board ranges from 18 to 25.

Board members serve three-year terms. They are eligible for reelection, and there are no limits to the number of terms. The board meets semi-annually in the spring and fall at times and locations determined by the board.
