Presidential search committee named for New Orleans Seminary

NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary trustee chairman Frank Cox named an 11-member presidential search committee Oct. 11 and called on Southern Baptists to pray through the search process.

The NOBTS bylaws call for the trustee chairman to appoint a committee with 11 voting members — including the board chairman, the immediate past chairman, one faculty member, one student and seven other board members. Cox said the committee represents the diversity of the seminary.

The search committee will begin formal meetings in November. After the initial meeting, the committee will release a list of qualifications for the type of leader they are seeking and will establish an avenue by which Southern Baptists can recommend qualified individuals for consideration, Cox said.
