Having announced they would unleash "limitless" numbers of missionaries, the Southern Baptist leadership says it has run out of their homes to sell off:
Overall, the agency spent about $210 million more than it brought in over the past 6 years, IMB leaders said.
Platt, who became the IMB's president a year ago, told reporters that he didn’t want to question the decisions made by past IMB leaders. The property sales have helped IMB missionaries spread the gospel, he said.
But the agency was running out of properties to sell. And relying on sales, along with drawing down reserves, was not a sustainable strategy.
