N.C. Baptist volunteers work at Hollifield Center

By Norman Jameson Special to the BR Baptist Men's volunteers brought their unique brand of ministry to bear on N.C. Baptists' newest learning facility, Hollifield Leadership Center at Lake Hickory, for three days in October. Statewide Baptist Builders coordinator Carl Nance led 37 workers from four regions to replace the windows, doors and siding on the main classroom building. They tackled cosmetic updates to the 40-year-old central building and will return to do more Nov. 29-Dec. 1.

Some of the men had been helping with the New York City and West Virginia recovery efforts the previous week. Nance said that he had been helping to clean dust from Manhattan apartments so the occupants could return after the Sept. 11 disaster.

"These men and women labor selflessly for the Lord and His people," Hollifield Director George Bullard said. "Their amazing work will infiltrate lives forever."

North Carolina Baptists bought the Duke Power facility in 2000 and fashioned it into the Hollifield Leadership Center as a place to develop congregational leadership. It is located in Conover on Lake Hickory.
