On Aug. 18, Stephen Mathis, interim president of the Missouri Baptist Foundation, announced he would retire from MBF on Sept. 30 after nearly 31 years working at the institution. Mathis, who is also executive vice president, has been interim president since June 2015 and previously served as interim president during two other transitions. MBF trustees are expected to select a new president soon.
Larry Shoaf, chariman of the MBF board, said, “Stephen Mathis has served Missouri Baptists well for over thirty years. Stephen has educated churches and individuals in the area of Christian Stewardship and Estate Planning. He has paved the road for a solid future for Missouri Baptist Foundation.”
