NAMB considering removal of president
The executive committee of the board of trustees of the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention is considering removing its president, Dr. Geoff Hammond, for "insubordination," according to a report in The Christian Index. The executive committee meets on August 11, but the full board may meet with them to make the decision.
I rotated off the board of trustees of NAMB last year. Having served as a trustee, I know how agonizing this situation must be. Dr. Hammond and the trustees need our prayers for wisdom, that God will be glorified through this situation.
