Nominations for CNBC National Leadership Board

Nomination for President

Bo Neal - Southwinds Baptist Church

Bo has a great heart and vision for the CNBC. He is a very trusted leader and has very high character. He has been keenly involved in church planting and has a proven track record of leadership within the Canadian National Baptist Convention. He has pastored long term in a very healthy CNBC church. 

I am honoured to nominate Bo Neal as President of the CNBC National Leadership Board. Gary Smith - Bow Valley Baptist Church, Cochrane, Alberta.


Nomination for First Vice-President

JD Fasolino - Emmanuel Baptist Church East

JD is a proven leader. He has led well in all aspects as the planter/pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church East (EBC East). He leads with integrity and with an incredible passion for the Kingdom of God.
JD is a multiplier. He leads the team at EBC East to develop leaders. They have already sent out one church to be planted and have several leaders in their leadership pipeline that will be moving towards being a church planter or on church planting teams.
JD is a collaborator. Over the years, JD works so well with others as he leads alongside the VIsion 2020 crew for new Spanish churches. JD is the Toronto church planter assessment director and also serves on the Send Toronto team. He brings not only his own gifts God has given him, but he also draws out the gifts of others on the team.

It is with honour that I nominate JD Fasolino as First Vice-President. Brett Porter, The Hamilton Fellowships, Hamilton, Ontario.

Nomination for Second Vice-President

Dick Hale - Worsley Baptist Church

Dick has pastored the same church for 37 years.  He has a wealth of spiritual insight and knowledge.  His church works hard to reach their community for Christ.  My church was blessed to partner with his church to do VBS and Sports Camps in their community.  Dick has led his church to be a team player in the convention and a faithful and generous supporter of the Cooperative Program. 

I would be honoured to nominate Dick Hale to serve as Second Vice President for the CNBC. Shane Spannagel, Ph.D. - Senior Pastor, Richmond Hill Baptist, Calgary, Alberta
