2019 AGM and Conference
Wolfville Baptist Church hosted our 2019 Annual General Meeting and Conference on October 4-5. Our Guest Speaker was Dr. David Odom, Executive Director, Leadership Education and Associate Dean, Leadership initiatives at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Odom spoke about 21st century congregations, why they are important and how they differ from 20th century ones.
During the AGM the membership approved the Strategic Plan - Proposed Framework. Lee Nicholas-Pattillo and David Allen were elected to another two year term as President and Treasurer respectively, Rev. Marlene Knowles was elected Vice President and Sheila Stanley was elected Secretary.
A highlight of the meeting was a presentation to the Rev. Dr. Roger H. Prentice who has been chosen as only the second Life Member of the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms. Having been one of the founders of its predecessor, the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship, and having served almost continuously since in a variety of offices, Dr. Prentice was a popular choice for this honour!
