Pathway launches a new feature: ‘Missouri Baptist Voices’
JEFFERSON CITY – The Pathway is always seeking for ways to connect with its readers. Two of the most visible examples have been its free Web site, www.mbcpathway.com, and letters to the editor. Now comes a new way for Pathway readers to connect. It is called “Missouri Baptist Voices.”
There are many talented Christian writers in the Missouri Baptist Convention and some have important things to share. So beginning with this issue, The Pathway will feature an opinion column from a Missouri Southern Baptist. Pastors and laity will be featured as they address a particular issue from a biblical/Christian worldview. The initial “Missouri Baptist Voices” column is located on page10 and features Springfield attorney Dee Wampler, a member of Second Baptist Church, Springfield.
The Pathway does not accept unsolicited manuscripts, but it will accept those marked “Missouri Baptists Voices.” All columns must be typed and sent as Word attachments via email with an accompanying digital photo of the writer along with a maximum two-sentence bio of the writer. Columns are to be 750-850 words in length and are subject to editing.
“We deeply appreciate our readers and want them to not only get involved, but feel like they have a stake in their state newspaper,” said Don Hinkle, editor of The Pathway. “There are some terrific minds throughout Missouri Southern Baptist life and we want them to share their ideas and stories. Because we only publish 26 issues a year and only one will be featured in each issue, ‘Missouri Baptist Voices’ is sure to offer only the very best in Christian writing from Missouri Southern Baptists.”
All manuscripts should be emailed to Hinkle at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone wanting more information may call him at 1-800-736-6227, Ext. 230.
