Rev. Mary Day Miller Called as New Executive Minister

To Our American Baptist Congregations and Leaders,

I am pleased to announce that at a Business Meeting called especially for the election of the Reverend Mary Day Miller on Saturday, June 20, 2015, - with 66 Churches, representing 7 associations registered, the motion to elect the Reverend Mary Day Miller as the Executive Minister of the American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts was passed, with a vote of: 118 yes, 9 no and 1 abstention. The meeting was held at the First Baptist Church of Worcester and began at 10:00AM.

We welcome Rev. Miller into the TABCOM Family and we request your prayers as she and her family move from Iowa. I extend the special thanks of the Board of Directors to every church and individual who participated in this historic occasion. Information concerning the Service of Installation for the Reverend Miller will be released in the near future.

In Christ, Howard McLendon, President and Chairperson of the Board of Directors
