ST. CHARLES – A comprehensive 36-page voter guide will be among the resources available at The Pathway exhibit during the Missouri Baptist Convention’s (MBC) annual meeting here Oct. 24-26 at the St. Charles Convention Center. Produced by the Constitutional Coalition in St. Louis, the voter guides will include information on statewide candidates, candidates for the General Assembly and all judgeships. The voter guide will also be available at The Pathway website, www.mbcpathway.com, and may be reproduced.
The Pathway exhibit will also be offering 1,000 copies of a book titled, Your 5 Duties as a Christian Citizen, written by the late Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ. The booklets are being provided at no cost by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) as part of the association’s “My Hope” emphasis in leading America to Christ. The Missouri field representative for the BGEA, David Claybrook, will be at The Pathway exhibit as well as at the Bott Radio Network’s exhibit in the main hallway as you enter the convention floor for all plenary sessions.
Free copies of Light, the magazine of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, will also be offered at The Pathway and MBC’s Christian Life Commission exhibits. The theme of this issue is “Religious Liberty.”
