Churchnet Teams

24032Our Board of Directors and Churchnet Staff are organized into a series of ministry teams. These teams allow us to better focus on our strategic initiatives and respond to requests from churches.

Our five primary Ministry Teams include:

All of board members and Churchnet officers serve on one of these teams. The ministry teams are led by a member of our Churchnet staff and may include other related staff members. The ministry team may enlist additional ad hoc team members who participate on a non-voting basis. If you are interested in serving on one of our ministry teams please contact a member of our Churchnet staff.

The board of directors also has an Administrative Team which includes our Churchnet officers, the assistant team leaders for each of our five ministry teams, and at least two at-large board members. This team handles administrative and personnel matters, our annual audit review, and coordinates budget planning and recommendations.

Brian Ford serves as Executive Director of Churchnet – A Baptist Network Serving Churches (and a ministry of the Baptist General Convention of Missouri). The convention was organized in April of 2002. Dr. Ford became the third executive director in 2017. The network in 2015 completed our third strategy planning process called Vision 2020 – Engaging the Future with Hope. Dr. Ford supervises a total of six staff members located throughout the state. A graduate of William Jewell College, he received his Master of Divinity degree from Central Baptist Theological Seminary and Doctor of Ministry degree from Luther Seminary. He previously served as pastor of Little Bonne Femme Baptist Church in Columbia, Mo., associate pastor at First Baptist Church in Independence, Mo., and youth minister at First Baptist Church in Lamar, Mo.
