    Posted on Apr 23, 2009 | by Staff JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (BP)--Messengers to the Missouri Baptist Convention's annual meeting in October will vote on a recommendation from the convention's executive board to spend Cooperative Program dollars to fund future litigation against five breakaway entities.

    The executive board unanimously approved a line item of $468,957 for legal fees in a proposed $15.75 million 2010 budget during its April 14 meeting in Jefferson City.

    "CP dollars purchased, built, established and maintained these five institutions," MBC Executive Director David Tolliver said. "In the fall, messengers will decide whether or not CP dollars will be used to recover the agencies."

    How much good could that $468,957 do? How many missionaries could be supported with that money?
