John Waters

Herman Parker

Waters serves as pastor of First Baptist Statesboro and GBC president while Parker is the pastor of First Baptist Bremen and chairman of the GBC Executive Committee.

The Committee on Committees will meet in Houston, Texas, just prior to the SBC annual meeting, June 11-12, to nominate members of the Committee on Nominations who, in turn, nominate trustees to serve on boards of the various entities of the SBC. SBC Bylaw 19 also provides that the Committee on Committees “shall nominate all special committees authorized during the sessions of the Convention not otherwise provided for.”

The Committee on Committees encompasses 70 members, two from each of the areas served by the 35 state or regional conventions qualified for representation on boards of SBC entities.
