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.

MBF Reviews Next Steps

On May 24, 2016, the Western District Missouri Court of Appeals issued a ruling in favor of the Executive Board of the Missouri Baptist Convention in its lawsuit against the Missouri Baptist Foundation.  The Foundation is now reviewing the decision and will decide what the appropriate next steps will be.  The Foundation respects the judges of the Missouri courts and the work they do, even as it does not agree with the outcome.  The Foundation will continue to perform its duties to its clients as it has done for all the 70 years of its existence, seeking to serve the mission and ministry efforts of all Missouri Baptists.
