CHURCH AGENCIES UNWELCOME AT MISSOURI BAPTIST CONVENTION

Missouri Baptists are wrapping up their annual meeting in Springfield today without five church agencies that changed their bylaws to elect their own boards of directors. The Missouri Baptist Convention has gone to court, declaring that it has the right to operate and control the agencies, including its former newspaper and a Baptist college. The breakaway agencies say they're trying to keep the convention from imposing conservative leadership. The Missouri Baptist Convention has withheld more than two (m) million dollars in funding from the agencies and has barred them from attending the annual meeting.
