DALLAS – Baptist General Convention of Texas Chief Financial Officer David Nabors has resigned effective April 15.
In a letter to BGCT Interim Executive Director Jan Daehnert, Nabors expressed gratitude for his time on the BGCT Executive Board staff.
“I cherish and thank the Lord for the six years I have been able to serve the Baptists of Texas in this calling,” he wrote. “Many life-long friendships have been made during my tenure, and I especially appreciate the staff for their hard work and support. Our combined efforts have served the Lord in wonderful ways I never dreamed would be my privilege.”
Daehnert indicated Nabors’ resignation is the turning of a page in Texas Baptist history. In recent months, convention Chief Operating Officer Ron Gunter resigned and Executive Director Charles Wade retired. Randel Everett will begin as the convention’s Executive Director March 31.
“We needed a change as it relates to the coming of a new executive director and moving forward to greater hope and possibilities,” Daehnert said. “We want to look forward to reaching people for Christ in effective and fiscally-responsible ways.”
Daehnert said he is working on plans for the transition period between Nabors and the next chief financial officer.
