Todd Unzicker Nominated to Lead Baptist State Convention of North Carolina

ASHEBORO, N.C. (BP) – Todd Unzicker, chief of staff at The Summit Church in the Raleigh-Durham, N.C., area, has been nominated by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s board of directors to become the next executive director-treasurer of the state convention.

The board voted to approve Unzicker’s candidacy based upon the recommendation of the search committee chaired by Noah Crowe, pastor of Peachtree Memorial Baptist Church in Murphy, during a special meeting held today (April 16) at Caraway Conference Center near Asheboro.

The board also voted to hold a special called meeting of the state convention on Saturday, May 22, at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem to consider Unzicker’s nomination. Details and registration information about the special called convention meeting will be announced soon.

State convention bylaws stipulate that the executive director-treasurer must be elected at an annual meeting or special called meeting of the convention, based upon a nomination from the board of directors. The bylaws also allow for the opportunity for additional nominations to be made from the floor of the convention.

The position became vacant when Milton A. Hollifield Jr. retired on Feb. 28 after serving nearly 15 years as the state convention’s top executive. Longtime state convention staff member Brian Upshaw has been serving as the interim executive director-treasurer.
