LENEXA, Kan. (BP) — Messengers to the annual meeting of the Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists celebrated the theme “Sharing the Gospel” at Lenexa Baptist Church in Lenexa, Kan.
A 2012 budget of $5,171,340 was adopted, reflecting no change from the current year. Kansas-Nebraska Baptists will continue to forward 32 percent of Cooperative Program receipts to national and international missions and ministries after shared expenses. The budget includes $2,904,000 in anticipated CP giving from Kansas and Nebraska churches.
John Shields, pastor of Parkview Baptist Church in Lexington, Neb., was elected president at the Oct. 17-18 meeting, and Andy Addis, pastor of Crosspoint Baptist Church in Hutchinson, Kan., was elected vice president, both by acclamation.
Next year’s annual meeting of the Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists will be Oct. 15-16 at Webster Conference Center in Salina, Kan.
