During this meeting, the Board agreed for the Convention to place the Marianna property back on the real estate market for a possible sale and for the conference center to operate during the summer of 2013 to generate additional operating income from the facility. By accommodating summer camps and events, the months of June, July and August are the busiest times for the conference center which will remain closed during the remainder of the year.
The Board also heard a status report from Convention staff who serve as regional coordinators in the Convention’s efforts to regionalize the state into five geographical regions for enhanced church planting endeavors and ministry programming.
Among other items approved was the sale of land on the Convention’s Jacksonville property where the Baptist Building is located to the State of Florida’s Department of Transportation. The sliver of land, totaling approximately 103 feet of property, will be used in the construction of the I-95 Overland Bridge.
