PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — Baptist church leaders are in Paducah for the annual meeting of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.
The all-day meeting Tuesday at Lone Oak First Baptist Church will include the election of a president and votes on resolutions. One of the resolutions seeks to honor Albert Mohler for his 20 years as president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.
The event will also include a brief update from the president of the Baptist-affiliated Sunrise Children's Services, which operates homes for abused children around the state. Last week, the Sunrise board of directors voted down a proposal to open its employment to gays.
The annual meeting was preceded by several days of outreach events in Paducah, including a ministry visit with inmates at the McCracken County Jail.
