Say hello to our new director, Jim Baird. It seems to us like Jim’s decades of experience in Christian publishing and ministry have uniquely shaped him to lead WORDsearch in the years to come. Here’s why:
Our former director, David Seibert, says, “Spend just five minutes with Jim and you will agree that this man has the heart of a servant.”
Jim is a family man. He and his wife Shelley have 5 children and 3 grandchildren. After receiving his Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary, Jim served 9 years in pastoral ministry, and then 20 years in Christian publishing. Jim also serves as the publisher for B&H Academic Books. He uses WORDsearch to prepare Bible study lessons that he teaches at church, and he’s an adjunct instructor for a Christian college.
We asked Jim to say a few words for the blog:
“I’ve been a WORDsearch customer for ten years. I love this tool and I’m thrilled with the opportunity to make it better and more useful for those of us who use it often. In my opinion, the most amazing thing about WORDsearch is not the product. It’s the user, and my calling is to serve those who preach and teach to change lives. Digital publishing is opening new potentials for ministry that we could not have imagined just a few years ago. I intend to be a good steward of these blessings, and I look forward to sharing exciting new possibilities with my WORDsearch friends in the days to come.”
Join with us in welcoming Jim to the WORDsearch team!
