At a recent BST Board of Trustees meeting, two Emeritus Trustees were brought on to the board in recognition of their significant contributions to society, the church, and BST.
Rev. Dr. Everett Curry (‘67) has served pastorally in the San Fernando Valley, Coachella Valley, Los Angeles City, Hawaii, and Oregon. He served two judicatories, Los Angeles Baptist City Mission Society and American Baptist Churches of Oregon, and two American Baptist related educational institutions, Linfield University and Berkeley School of Theology.
Everett served as Trustee for American Baptist Seminary of the West for eight years representing his region. While in that capacity, he volunteered four years as Director of Development at the school, encouraging the growth of financial strength through continued development of graduates.
Dr. Harold Davis has over thirty years of commitment to BST in a variety of roles, including board chair and chair of the finance/investment committee. He has served in small nonprofits and mid-sized organizations and also worked his way up through the ranks to become the head of the Housing Authority of Oakland overseeing hundreds of employees. He has also served as the President of the ABCUSA national denomination and in other areas within the ABCUSA denomination. Despite being retired for years now, Harold is connected within the community and still active at Beth Eden Baptist Church.
