Charles Wade will resign as executive director of the BGCT in January 2008. More details from the Baptist Standard are here. His resignation letter is here.
I have only met Dr. Wade and his wife Rosemary once, when they visited our church. They are wonderful people, committed to serving God in Texas and the world. One of the things I most admire about Dr. Wade is the social justice work in which his church became engaged while he was pastor of First Baptist Arlington. Mission Arlington is an amazing program that serves thousands of our society's most vulnerable people. It is a model for the ways churches can and should engage with our communities.
