For quite some time now in Southern Baptist life, when controversial decisions have been made within our entities, I have heard our leaders repeat the mantra, “Trust the trustees!” But is it truly a prudent exercise of stewardship to bestow upon our trustee boards this kind of unlimited trust?
I was in danger of finding out that in the end I was not saved, not due to my misunderstanding or misappropriation of the gospel, or even my very own self deception, but rather, it was God who was responsible for the whole thing.
We remain excited for the future direction of our Network and are looking forward to accomplishing great things for God’s Kingdom.
Every other year, Southern Baptists produce a compensation study for the benefit of church personnel committees seeking to pay an equitable wage to their ministers, support staff and custodial workers. However, currently, no such study exists to report the compensation of our Southern Baptist executives. This lack of accountability deserves an immediate remedy.
