Next Steps for Michigan Baptists: The search is on for the next Executive Director/Treasurer

PLYMOUTH – After nine years of faithful service to the Baptist churches of Michigan, Pastor Timothy Patterson will be retiring as the Executive Director/Treasurer of the Baptist State Convention of Michigan (BSCM) at the end of 2024. Pastor Patterson has spent this last decade, alongside his specifically curated team, rebuilding and unifying the great churches in Michigan. He has brought the state convention back from the edge of certain death by establishing healthy leadership within the state office, pouring into long time pastoral leaders, and developing over 115 new church plants! The growing number of church plants have led to a renewed excitement, evidenced by a rise in Cooperative Program giving and reported baptisms. After several years of declining giving and baptisms, the trajectory is climbing under the leadership of Pastor Patterson.


With all that in mind, the family of churches that forms the BSCM has turned its attention to Pastor Patterson’s successor. The search is on for someone to fill the big shoes that will be left behind. It is an exciting time in the life of Michigan Baptists. We are experiencing an extremely fruitful season of Kingdom work throughout Michigan and the next Executive Director will join hands and hearts with men and women who are committed to The Great Commission, which has always been the aim of Southern Baptists for past two centuries.
