“We are delighted to hold the second annual ‘Missouri Baptist Day’ in appreciation of Missouri’s Southern Baptist churches, state convention and local associations,” Midwestern President R.

Midwestern will host guest speaker Mitch Jackson, president of the Missouri Baptist Convention and pastor, Miner Baptist Church of Sikeston, who will speak in a special 10 a.m. chapel service to Midwestern faculty, staff and students, as well as Missouri Baptist churches, pastors and associational leaders.
