    Effective Dec. 31, 2013, Johnny Ross will retire after 14 years as the GuideStone representative of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC).

    Ross has served Baptist leaders, employees and laity with their retirement, insurance plans, taxes and compensation planning.

    GuideStone Financial Resources provides consultation to more than 4,000 churches affiliated with the BSC to offer wise counsel undergirded and empowered by spiritual insight.
     
    “I’ve spent the past 14 years of my life emphasizing the importance of providing adequately for God-called servants,” Ross said. “Without question, I will miss the many meaningful relationships in the Baptist family, which have been very enriching to my family through the years.”
     
    Even though Ross served more than a decade as the state representative, he was an adult consultant for the BSC Bible Reaching Team from 1979-1999, a tally of 34 years serving N.C. Baptists.
     
    Ross received a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and two more degrees – another master’s and a doctorate – from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest.
     
    Ross and his wife, Rhea, have been members of Salem Baptist Church in Apex for three years. At Salem, he serves as a deacon and on the personnel committee.

    “It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve North Carolina Baptists all these years,” Ross said.
     
    “I have loved serving as a state representative for those many years, and for me, retirement means being attentive to what else God has in store.”
