Wyoming Southern Baptist Mission Network Elect Quin Williams as New State Missionary

Quin Williams is the new State Missionary of the Wyoming Southern Baptist Mission Network.

Approved by the convention’s executive board during its Sept. 14 meeting, Williams will be presented to messengers as the executive leader Nov. 1 during their 35th annual meeting at Mountain View Baptist Church in Mills, near Casper. Williams will begin his new role that same day.

“I am very pleased Quin Williams was selected,” Lynn Nikkel, who is retiring from the executive director role, told Baptist Press. “Quin has a great love for Wyoming, and the trust and respect of our churches and pastors.”

Nikkel is retiring after 13 years in the executive role, and after 18 years on the state convention staff. He and his wife Peggy have sold their home in Casper and bought a home in Collinsville, Okla. After a two-month break, Nikkel said, he hopes to find a new ministry in Oklahoma.

Williams, who has been pastor of Boyd Avenue Baptist Church in Casper since 1996, has a total of 40 years in the gospel ministry.

A Texas transplant, he graduated in 1977 from Howard Payne University in Brownwood, Texas, with a double degree in Bible and religious education, and in 1985 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a M.Div. degree.

He pastored five Southern Baptist churches in Texas for more than 17 years, ending his tenure there with Cove Baptist Church in Orange.
