The Canadian Baptists of Atlantic Canada (CBAC) announces the resignation of Ron Scott (Communications Manager) effective October 6, 2023. Ron joined the CBAC team in April 2019.
During his time as a valued member of the CBAC Team, Ron has capably taken our communications to the next level and set a high standard. He brought deep creativity, a heart for the local church, and a love for God and people that was evident in everything he did. Ron took excellent care and attention to detail with every task, project, and conversation. His fingerprint is evident on everything from our resources to our pastors and churches like videos, podcasts, websites, email newsletters, Oasis, print projects like The Neighbourhood booklet, and so much more. Ron cared about our mission and vision making sure that everything included that thread.
None of us anticipated what might be required as the pandemic impacted all our lives. Ron helped our team and our CBAC family navigate the challenges, find solutions for our churches, and kept us connected virtually when we could not meet in person. None of us will soon forget the two virtual Oasis gatherings. While we hope to never have to do Oasis like this again, Ron’s ministry helped make these impacting and memorable experiences.
“In the four and a half years with this office, I have felt honoured to witness moments of joy and moments of challenge that our Atlantic Baptist family has experienced,” says Ron. “I’ve come to discover that there is a deep value in doing this work together as a denominational family. God has been at work in our neighbourhoods, in ways that are both seen and unseen. He’s looking for faithful followers to pray fervently and embody the good news of Jesus in words and actions—and I’m thankful that I’ve met them in our churches. I’m also encouraged about the CBAC team’s future as they now enter a new season with Renée’s leadership. I’m cheering her on, even as I step away from my paid role.”
Rev. Renée MacVicar offered these words: “We are so grateful for who Ron is, and all that he has done for us. Ron has served the CBAC team and family so well, consistently going above and beyond to make us look good, help the team, and further our mission. Ron served as Communications Manager and Oasis Program Director faithfully through some very tumultuous times in our world. Ron led through that time season with such grace and dedication. Thank you, Ron! We will miss you but are cheering you on as you take on this next great adventure.”
Ron has accepted a position on staff with Trinity Church Nottingham in England, supporting their communications and worship team ministry. We thank God for allowing Ron to share his gifts with us and pray God will bless he and Erica on their next adventure
