Wells to be re-nominated for reg. secretary

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (BP) -- Jim Wells, Cooperative Program state missionary for strategic partners for the Missouri Baptist Convention, will be re-nominated for another one-year term as Southern Baptist Convention registration secretary during the June 19-20 annual meeting in New Orleans, a Missouri pastor has announced.

Wells was diagnosed in 2010 with a form of cancer, a sarcoma malignancy in his left hip muscle, and will miss this year's meeting due to a June 18 procedure his doctors say is necessary, said Josh Hall, pastor of the Selmore Baptist Church in Ozark, Mo. Once the procedure is behind him, Wells' prognosis is excellent, Hall said.

Hall said he will nominate Wells.

John L. Yeats, the SBC's recording secretary and the executive director of the Missouri Baptist Convention, said Wells has done a fine job as registration secretary. Yeats and Wells work together in Missouri.

"I join with thousands of Southern Baptists praying for Jim and Judy," Yeats said. "Throughout the year there is so much work to this position beyond the annual meeting, and Jim has everything delegated and ready for the convention in New Orleans. While he must cooperate with his medical team, Jim is the right guy to get the work done for registration secretary."

Wells was first elected as registration secretary in 2002. He formerly was director of missions for Missouri's Tri-County Baptist Association in Nix.
