One of the nominees for trustee of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is ineligible to serve because of an oversight relating to the seminary’s charter requirements, according to Loyd Freeman, chairman of the SBC Committee on Nominations. The individual, Gary Griesser, had agreed to serve as one of nine “local” trustees, but the Committee on Nominations had not realized he lives in a Kentucky county other than those specified in the seminary charter. Freeman said the Committee on Nominations is seeking to work through the two Kentucky state nominators to select a nominee from the correct geographic area.
