More fog about NAMB’s future

North American Mission Board

Stay in the dark, Southern Baptists.

Great Commission Resurgence Task Force (GCRTF) member Ted Traylor told the Florida Baptist Witness that he “did some serious thinking” about the prospect of simultaneously leading the North American Mission Board (NAMB) presidential search committee.

He of course accepted, thus raising again the keystone question:

Will the troubled NAMB be merged with the troubled International Mission Board?

Traylor acknowledged speculation the GCRTF may recommend merging IMB and NAMB or creating one new mission board to replace the current mission boards, but said, “I also know what is being discussed in the GCR meetings. However, I do not believe it is my place to discuss those things until we come to some solid conclusions.”

We already know SBC chief Johnny Hunt doesn’t want anyone to talk about the fate of the recently troubled and, a well-respected Southern Baptist leader says, misconceived agency. So GCRTF members go on filling the air with fog.


Read the entire story and you will see Traylor either isn’t reading or has decided not to heed Wade Burleson’s warnings against attaching God’s name to our decisions.
