William Jewell Trustees identified
December 16, 2002
Missouri Baptist Convention leaders are calling on Southern Baptists in Missouri to write or call trustees serving William Jewell College and express their opinions concerning the sex and homosexuality controversies at the school. Addresses may be obtained by calling the president’s office at 816-781-7700, Ext. 5100. Missouri Baptists are also urged to contact members of the Missouri Baptist Convention’s inter-agency committee, which is inquiring about the activity at the school.
Of William Jewell’s 17 trustees at least four – John Hughes, Doyle Sager, Bob Webb and Joy Steincross — have connections with the anti-SBC, pro-CBF moderate movement in Missouri. Also, four others are from states other than Missouri.
