The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention has appointed the members of the committee that will look for a new commission president.

The ERLC Executive Committee appointed Barry Creamer, vice president of academic affairs at Criswell College in Dallas, Texas as chair. Elizabeth Wood, spokeswoman of the ERLC, told The Christian Post that the presidential search committee "will determine the scope of the process and will release information based on their discretion."

Declining to comment further, Wood provided CP with a statement made by Richard Piles, acting chair of the ERLC Executive Committee to Baptist Press.
