    “I am excited to welcome Shawn to the Biblical Recorder staff,” said K. Allan Blume, editor/president of the Biblical Recorder. “He shares our vision for the Great Commission and brings valuable experience in journalism to this ministry. I believe North Carolina Baptists will appreciate his leadership and his perspective.”

    Hendricks has been at the IMB for almost 10 years. He has a communication arts degree with an emphasis on journalism from Union University in Jackson, Tenn., and cut his teeth at the State Gazette in Dyersburg, Tenn., before working in public relations at Hannibal-LaGrange College in Hannibal, Mo. He also was a writer at Word & Way, the Baptist paper in Jefferson City, Mo.

    “It’s an exciting time to join the Biblical Recorder,” said Hendricks.

    “God is doing some amazing things through North Carolina Baptists in this state, around the country and in other nations. I’m looking forward to being a part of the BR team and helping tell this story.”

    Hendricks said his time at the IMB gave him a front-row seat to how God is “impacting lives throughout the world. It’s been a wonderful ride, and I’ve enjoyed seeing how God continues to transform lives.”

    The Baptist Communicators Association awarded Hendricks awards in features and news writing this year for coverage in Haiti.

    He and his wife, Stephanie, have a daughter, Laura. For the past two years the Hendricks have been involved at Movement Church, a church plant in Richmond, Va.

    The Board met Sept. 26 at Caraway Conference Center near Asheboro. During that same board meeting, the directors approved a move of the Recorder offices to the Baptist State Convention in Cary.
