Board Of Directors

The Alliance is grateful for the leadership gifts it receives from so many volunteers who dedicate their time as board members, committee chairs, and community coordinators. The Board of Directors, in partnership with the staff, moves the vision and mission of the Alliance forward. Members of the Alliance are invited to submit the names of potential candidates to serve as directors on the board of the Alliance of Baptists to info@allianceofbaptists.org.
