From Your Executive Director

Welcome to the Baptist Association of Christian Educators Website!

Jerri Herring
Executive Director of BACE

BACE is a professional organization for all Christian Educators with a long history and rich heritage.  We strive to provide on going help and services for Christian Educators and we are looking forward to your participation with us.  As a member you will receive a quarterly newsletter with helpful articles as well as information related to the organization.

You will find the members of BACE to be both helpful and knowledgeable.  Post your questions or comments and we will respond to your requests or help point you to answers you seek.

I hope that you will join us at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, GA, next April 9-10, for our annual conference.  We have chosen the speakers with you in mind.  Isn’t it time for each of us to have time to “recharge” our spiritual, family and personal batteries?  In the grind of our daily lives we often forget the very things that are most important for our continued growth and health.

It has been my pleasure to join with the 2015 planning Team.  Bill Gambrell, Associate Pastor, Education/Program Ministries, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church is the Chairman.

Other members of the team are:

Tim Holcomb, Chairman BACE Board of Directors; Bruce Raley, LifeWay Christian Resources; Tim Smith, Sunday School/Small Groups, Georgia Baptist Convention; David Suddath, Church Development Director, Nooonday Associaiton; Joel Harrison, Lead Missionary, Atlanta Metro Association; Ray Gentry, Director of Ministries, Southside Baptist Network; Angie Bauman, Director of Student Services & Assistant Professor of Christian Education, New Orleans Seminary – North Georgia Center; Allan Taylor, Minister of Education, First Baptist Church, Woodstock; Richard Brown, Education Church Growth Pastor – Tabernacle Baptist Church; Marty Godfrey, Executive Pastor, Burnt Hickory Baptist Church; Kim Harris, Leadership Strategist, West Cobb Church.
