Kentucky Baptists Name Curtis Woods & Jim Donnell as Interim Executive Directors as Paul Chitwood Leaves for International Mission Board

Two top assistants to outgoing Kentucky Baptist Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood will serve together as interim leaders of the organization while a search committee works to find his replacement.

Chitwood was selected as the new president of the International Mission Board Nov. 15.

The KBC Administrative Committee appointed Curtis Woods, associate executive director for convention relations, and Jim Donnell, associate executive director for convention operations, to serve as co-interim executive directors.

“These men are strong leaders who will keep KBC running well in the interim,” said administrative committee chairman Dan Summerlin, pastor of Lone Oak First Baptist Church in Paducah. “They know the inner workings of KBC well, and we felt fortunate to have such qualified and gifted men available to step in until the search for a new executive director is completed.”

A 15-member search team, representing every region of the state, has been appointed to find Chitwood’s replacement.
