The State Convention of Baptists in Indiana (SCBI) is excited to announce that Dan Conrades will be joining our staff as Associate Team Leader of the Church and Leader Mobilization Team, supervised by Scooter Kellum. Conrades, who previously served as pastor of Crosspoint Church in Richmond, IN, for the past seven years, will begin his new role on May 1, 2023.

With the recent loss of four staff positions and budget reductions, SCBI was in need of one full-time staff person who would combine administrative and ministry skills and experience.

“Recent changes to how we must staff in order to serve our churches most effectively require that we have versatility and ministry skill,” said Dr. Ryan Strother, Executive Director. “Dan brings the perfect blend of administrative adeptness and ministry expertise that will allow us to adjust as our churches will need for years to come. His love for Jesus and the Church, and his humble servant-heartedness are huge wins for our state convention.”

“When we started looking for our new Associate Team Leader, I started thinking about who I have met in Indiana that would thrive and excel in this position.” said Kellum. “Dan is the right choice for this role because he is the best fit for our SCBI family. Dan’s ability to be extremely detailed and organized paired with his love for people and ability to relate to churches made him an easy choice for this position! The future is bright for SCBI, because Dan has a heart for connecting for Kingdom advancement and serving churches. Truly, it is a great day to be an Indiana Baptist.”

Dan holds a bachelor’s degree from Messiah University (Mechanicsburg, PA) and a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Louisville, KY).

Please join the SCBI in welcoming Dan Conrades to the team and praying for his family as they transition to the Indianapolis area in the coming months.
