Baptist school cancels mission trip for church dismissed from SBC

FORT WORTH, Texas (ABP) — A Kentucky Baptist university has, at the last minute, withdrawn its invitation to host a youth mission team from Texas after the Southern Baptist Convention disfellowshipped their church for its toleration of homosexuals.

Brent Beasley, pastor of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth, said the church’s youth minister received a call June 30 from an official at the University of the Cumberlands informing her that the congregation’s youth choir is no longer welcome to stay in dorms or perform mission work through the school’s Mountain Outreach construction program, which builds houses for the disadvantaged in Appalachia. Beasley said a church near the school’s Williamsburg, Ky., campus also canceled a concert that had been scheduled as part of the mission trip.
