More Baptist Alcohol Talk

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (ABP)—In a sign of continuing turmoil within the Missouri Baptist Convention, the body’s Executive Board has appointed a committee to investigate their embattled executive director.

The group also discussed allegations that a four-year-old church in St. Louis, supported by a convention loan, is encouraging alcohol consumption.

During the board’s Dec. 12 meeting, board member Wesley Hammond made a surprise motion that the board appoint a “committee to investigate rumors affecting the character of some of our members which, if true, would render them unworthy of leadership, and cast doubt on our credibility and our integrity as an Executive Board,” according to an account by Baptist Press, the Southern Baptist Convention’s communications arm.
