  • Judge rules in favor of MBC in Baptist Home, MBU case

    by Missouri Pathway Staff , posted Tuesday, October 03, 2017 (10 months ago)

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (BP) -- A specially-appointed judge has ordered The Baptist Home and Missouri Baptist University to seat trustees elected by the Missouri Baptist Convention. If the ruling stands, the two organizations would resume operating under convention-approved charters and boards for the first time since 2001.

    In an 86-page opinion signed Sept. 27, Special Judge Karl DeMarce held that trustees of the Baptist Home and MBU violated Missouri law when they cut off the MBC's rights in 2000 and 2001, respectively. Both charters required MBC messengers to approve any changes. Once final, the court's order voids any unapproved amendments, reinstates the MBC's rights, and returns the entities to the MBC.
