What it means
The reorganization organizes ministries and work groups that address specific components of the 5 Smooth Stones and provides church strengthening services. For more information visit the5smoothstones.com.
When does it take place?
When was the last major reorganization?
Are new jobs being added?
A very limited number of positions are being created but are within the current budget restraints. No additional funds are required to implement the reorganization.
The Georgia Baptist Convention has reorganized itself around a more aggressive strategy that is focused on reaching more of the unchurched through five core initiatives.
The new structure, which is the most far-reaching reorganization since March 1997, was shared with staff on Sept. 10 and then with Executive Committee members during their fall meeting on Sept. 11.
The reorganization flows out of a strategy called 5 Smooth Stones which was approved by messengers at the annual meeting in November. That new emphasis was the result of an exhaustive two-year study of the state convention by a GBC Study Task Force.
