A ROSE to the Missouri Baptist Convention for offering an alternate giving plan to local churches who do not want their offerings to fund the lawsuits against the breakaway entities. I do not foresee Selmore using this alternate plan, but I commend the executive board for their sensitivity to local churches' unique convictions.
A ROSE to the Missouri Baptist Convention for proposing a comprehensive Acts 1:8 missions strategy that will help our local churches link with mission fields in northern Illinois, Ontario, and western Africa. Too cool.
A ROSE to the Missouri Baptist Convention for spreading its fleet of block party trailers out around the state, so that churches in the far corners of the state (i.e. Selmore) don't have to drive all the way to Jefferson City to pick them up.
