Partnership with BSCNC a highlight of Annual Meeting
Applause erupted from attendees at the evening session of the Annual Meeting of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina
(BSCNC) on Monday, November 8 when Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH) received $300,000 in funding for the new EVERY CHILD Foster & Adoption Ministry. The surprise check presentation was a highlight for BCH as the EVERY CHILD partnership between BCH and BSCNC was highlighted as a
part of the two-day gathering at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro.
“Humbling is what immediately comes to my mind when I reflect on the magnitude of this gift from our passionate North Carolina Baptist friends,” BCH president/CEO Michael C. Blackwell said.
The presentation of an oversized check was made to Blackwell by recently-elected BSCNC executive director-treasurer Todd Unzicker
during his inaugural address to messengers.
“The Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina is a vital ministry partner, and we are excited about the launch of the EVERY CHILD
initiative,” Unzicker said. “Scripture tells us that God is a father to the fatherless and calls us to care for the needs of orphans.”
With approximately 16,000 children in the North Carolina foster care system, the goal of the EVERY CHILD partnership is to equip
churches to be directly involved in foster care and adoption.
