PROPOSED MBC Governing Documents & Processes
Welcome to the MBC Governing Documents & Processes webpage. I invite all Missouri Baptists to read the documents below and to respond with questions and comments. The revised documents are the result of two years of intense work by a blue-ribbon task force appointed by the MBC Executive Board.
On July 11, 2016, the Board voted to accept the work of the task force. Now, the Board is scheduled to present these documents to messengers at our annual meeting Oct. 24-26 in St. Charles. If accepted, Missouri Baptists have one year to review the documents and then vote to approve them at the 2017 MBC Annual Meeting.
The “Historical Background and Major Changes” document provides an executive summary of the task force’s work.
The “Proposed Documents” manuscript offers the full text of all governing documents and processes.
Please remember that the governing documents are “corporate” documents that delineate the behavior of corporations, institutions, and trustees. The documents are not the place for strategies, goals, or day-to-day/year-to-year operational procedures.
To ask questions or offer comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for electing an outstanding Executive Board that provides godly oversight of my work and the work of my fellow MBC missionary staff members.
Dr. John Yeats
