LifeWay lays off two dozen workers
    June 14 2010 by BR staff

    LifeWay Christian Resources has laid off approximately two dozen employees in what spokesman Micah Carter said is a part of the “normal budgeting cycle.”

    Carter would not confirm or deny the number of what he called “staff deletions,” but other sources pin the number at 24-26.

    LifeWay, which produces much of the literature used by most Southern Baptist churches, employs about 4,750 people, Carter said.

    He said the “deletions” were not economy driven, but came about as part of the annual review of LifeWay goals and actions for the next budget cycle. He said staff changes resulted from “leadership changes” and “resource stewardship” and said “additions” were made as well.

    “Difficult decisions have to be made,” for LifeWay to have “the right mix of people” on board, he said.

    Carter urged churches to understand that LifeWay “ministry is being honed and sharpened in the process.”

    Through seven months of the budget cycle, Carter said the LifeWay budget is in “really good financial shape.”

    “LifeWay is strong and healthy,” said Carter, associate to the vice president for executive relations. “That’s not to say we don’t have our challenges,” but the personnel changes were not economy driven.
