The Baptist Center for Ethics' board of directors unanimously approved R. Mitch Randall as BCE's new executive director.
Randall will begin his tenure Jan. 1, 2018, becoming only the second executive director in the organization's 26-year history. He follows the tenure of BCE's founder, Robert Parham, who died in March 2017.
A documentary released last fall by EthicsDaily.com (also known as the Baptist Center for Ethics) made its Missouri debut on Feb. 1 in Kansas City. “The Disturbances” covers the previously-untold story of missionaries saving lives in the midst of genocidal violence in Nigeria in 1966. In a matter of days, thousands — and perhaps as many as 30,000 people — were killed due to their tribal identity.
