DUBLIN — Pastor Cameron McGill, who serves at Dublin First Baptist Church, was recently named second vice-president of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
“I was very humbled. There are 4,400 churches in the state …” said McGill.
He said that he and BSC President T. J. Bordeaux, who is also from Bladen County, think there are strengths in the smaller churches that make up the convention.
“Small churches make up the majority of the churches in the state,” said McGill. “We both feel there are strengths in small churches and we want to get those churches plugged in more in missions.”
He added the DFBC is a prime of example of what a smaller church can accomplish. For example, according to reports, DFBC has added more than 500 members during the last five decades. In the past two years DFBC has adopted two other churches to partner with in ministry.
McGill doesn’t take his position lightly. He told the Biblical Recorder that, when he chose to place his name on the list for consideration, it was with “much prayer and seeking the will of the Lord.”
He has served at three other churches as youth pastor before coming to DFBC as pastor. McGill has served as pastor at DFBC for the past 13 years. In addition, he has served on the executive committee and the Baptist State Convention Board of Directors to name just a few of the positions he has held.
McGill said he is looking forward to his tenure as second vice-president with the BSC.
