Todd Fisher, senior pastor of Shawnee, Immanuel, has been nominated to serve as the next executive director-treasurer for Oklahoma Baptists, according to an Oct. 4 announcement from Michael Staton, chairman of the search committee, who is pastor of Mustang, First.

Fisher has been pastor at Immanuel since 2003 and is currently serving a one-year term as Oklahoma Baptists’ president. He will be presented to Oklahoma Baptists’ state convention board members for consideration and a vote during a specially-called business meeting set for October 5 in Oklahoma City.
