ARKANSAS BAPTISTS COMMITTED ELECT PART-TIME
COORDINATOR

Congratulations to Arkansas Baptists for creating an Arkansas Baptists Committed organization and employing parttime staff to establish the new work.

Tony Woodell was elected president of the group and began his work in August. Tony traveled to San Angelo this month
to meet with Texas Baptists Committed coordinator, David Currie. The aim of the new Baptists Committed organization is education and healing, especially for moderate Baptists who have been
excluded from state convention and SBC leadership roles.
