Thanking CBAC Staff for Their Service

Due to administrative level restructuring, a few of our CBAC Team members are concluding their roles in the coming days. This administrative restructuring occurred to address CBAC’s reduced funding and changes in our administrative needs, leading to a realignment of roles and changing job descriptions. We want you to be informed of these changes and encourage you to thank these individuals for their long service with the CBAC. If you’d like to send a thank you note to any of these individuals, we’ll be sure to pass it along. You can email

Wendy Jones’s role as the Administrative Services Manager and Atlantic Baptist Mission Board (ABMB) Assistant to the Director will end this week. Wendy has served in a number of roles on the CBAC team for 12 years. She has served with a heart of helpfulness to staff and churches. She has helped sort through numerous complicated situations, whether with church properties or personnel issues. Wendy has offered great care for many of you as you worked through complex situations, and you experienced her attention to detail on the phone, in her email replies, or during a visit.
