Kurt Selles is on track to become the next director of Back to God Ministries International (BTGMI), the media ministry of the Christian Reformed Church.
Selles was nominated by the board of BTGMI and was endorsed by the denomination’s Board of Trustees at its recent meeting. His appointment will have to be ratified by Synod 2012, the annual leadership meeting of the CRC.
Selles is a former missionary with Christian Reformed World Missions, serving in Taiwan and China. He teaches missions at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Ala.
“I’m humbled and honored to have the opportunity to work with the BTCMI team to proclaim the gospel,” Selles said. “I look forward to building on the collaboration that is already there.”
Selles fills the vacancy left by Rev. Robert Heerspink, BTGMI’s director for several years, who died in 2011 of pancreatic cancer.
