On June 28, Missouri Baptist Foundation celebrates 70 years of service to God and Missouri Baptists! 

At the first meeting of MBF Trustees, T.W. Medearis (first MBF President) spoke as follows:

“You brethren have been chosen, not as a small committee to do a little piece of work, but after a careful survey of the state you have been chosen as outstanding men to render a tremendously big service to the cause of Christ and of Missouri Baptists. So far as funds are concerned you will start from “scratch”, but it is hoped that as the years pass large sums will be entrusted to this Foundation in the interest of denominational institutions and causes”.

MBF began with three founding accounts that totaled $80,000. Today, 70 years later, assets under management are approximately $140 million.

On July 5, 2016, the Western District Missouri Court of Appeals overruled and denied Missouri Baptist Foundation’s motions to rehear or transfer to the Missouri Supreme Court the court’s May 24, 2016 ruling. The Foundation is disappointed with this decision but respects the work of the judges of the Missouri courts. The Foundation will now consider the option available of appealing to the Missouri Supreme Court. Business operations of the Foundation continue, as they have throughout the legal proceedings, to focus on caring for clients and seeking to fulfill the MBF’s unchanged mission to serve the mission and ministry efforts of all Missouri Baptists. June 28, 2016 marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of Missouri Baptist Foundation. The services of the Foundation have provided and continue to provide millions of dollars of support to Missouri Baptist churches and related ministries each year.
