    ..."This will put the state convention and associations in Montana out of business," said Fred Hewett, executive director-treasurer of the Montana Southern Baptist Convention, one of two new work state conventions (along with the Baptist Convention of Iowa) that are partners with the Tennessee Baptist Convention.

    ...In addition to Barrentine and Hewett, Joseph Bunce, executive director of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico, expressed concern over the GCRTF report in a first-person column released by Baptist Press Feb. 25.

    Bunce noted that at the end of the cooperative agreements, "NAMB jointly-funded missionaries would be under the direct supervision of NAMB, rather than the state conventions they have historically served. This is huge for New Mexico and is a death sentence for other western state conventions."

    I am not for this for two reasons:

    1. The reasons spoken of above

    2. It places the responsibility of the results on man and not God.
