It's Transition Time; Burnaman to end tenure as State Missions Director
I've been working with the Mission Trustees about transition--the time to transfer leadership to someone else. In our last trustee meeting, the decision was made for me to end my tenure as Missions Director, Dec. 31, 2015. They also agreed for me to continue through 2016 in an emeritus capacity.
This past April, I concluded 17 years as executive director of the BMA of Texas, and it has been a good ride. We made some positive changes, and some that didn't work. We haven't reached all our goals but that may be good. Denis Waitley wrote, "have a purpose that will outlive you and pursue it with passion.
The trustees will have information in Baptist Progress for interested persons to apply for the position. This is a time for us to pray fervently and seek God's guidance.
