Gordon Coleman, pastor of Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church in rural Callaway County, Missouri, talks with Word&Way Editor & President Brian Kaylor about a massive attack by vandals on the buildings of the historic Black Baptist church started by enslaved persons before the Civil War.
You can find earlier Word&Way coverage about the church and the vandalism here, here, & here. And you can give to support the church's repair efforts by giving to their “building fund” at tithe.ly/give?c=1904613 or by sending a check to Mount Vernon Missionary Baptist Church, PO Box 116, Holts Summit, MO 65043 (with “building fund” in memo).
