Our Leadership and Accountability

Friends who invest their hearts, time, families, and finances in a missional ministry deserve to have confidence in the mission’s leadership. People are looking for leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and respect when making decisions that affect their lives and the ministries they support.

We are guided by a Director.

Bill Black has been the Director of Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries since November, 1981.   His calling to resort ministry continues to be affirmed by God. His professional work reflects a serious response to that calling. Bill’s heart is devoted to the programs, administration, development, and leadership of Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries.

We are led by a Board.

The Board of Directors for Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries are responsible for the strategic mission and the financial development of the ministry. The Board consists of pastors, business people, and community leaders. They are all committed to a quality present and a blessed future for Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries.

We are encouraged in relationship.

The roots of Smoky Mountain Resort Ministries are found in the Southern Baptist churches of Sevier County, Tennessee. The Sevier County Association of Baptists is a great supporter of this ministry and, while we are independent in our responsibility, we report to their executive board monthly in accountability. We also celebrate similar relationships with Chilhowee Baptist Association and several churches.
