At its first meeting July 22, the new Credentials Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention elected Stacy Bramlett of Tennessee to serve as chair.
The committee is charged with making inquiries and recommendations for action regarding sexual abuse, racism, or other issues that call a church’s relationship with the SBC into question. Bramlett is one of four women on the nine-member committee, whose areas of oversight Baptists voted to expand this summer at the SBC annual meeting in Birmingham.
Bramlett has served on the SBC Executive Committee since 2016, including two years as secretary.
She is senior vice president of Independent Bank in Collierville, Tenn., and a member of Collierville First Baptist Church, where she has served on the finance committee, personnel committee, building finance committee, worship team, and choir. She and her husband, Andy, teach an adult Bible fellowship class and a divorce recovery class.
“I am humbled at being selected,” Bramlett said, “and I am approaching the role with much prayer and total dependency on the leadership of the Holy Spirit.”
