Welcome 

Thank you for visiting our website!

 

It is our joy to welcome you to the internet presence of the Missionary Baptist State Convention of Missouri. Here you will find information concerning our convention and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.

Pastors - we need your support! The primary means of support that we seek is your fellowship! This is OUR convention and we want you to join us in our sessions and encourage the people of your congregation to do the same. 

If you are new to Missouri and surrounding states - Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and Tennesse, considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we have congregations throughout the "Show Me State" that would love to have you be their guest.

Microsoft Teams Information

Every which a way to Join a Teams Meeting (about 8 minutes total)

There was a question about screen sharing in teams. Hope this helps!

Screen sharing in Teams

 

Teams Tips and Tricks (some of these items are still being distributed) (20 Minutes)

 

Beyond Meetings in Microsoft Teams (convention officers (including auxiliaries) can get an account with us offering more privileges than a guest (other microsoft account) would receive. email the webmaster for details.)  (14 minutes)

We've had some questions about using teams for churches and district associations. While the full capbilites of Teams is only available to paid or grant versions (Office 365 for Non-Profits in our case), there is a free version of Teams that could be useful to you. Here's a video that talks about that version.

 


VOTE 2020

We encourage every registered voter to participate in the November 3, 2020 General Election!

The last day to request a Mail-In or Absentee Ballot by mail was October 21. If you have not yet requested a mail-in or absentee ballot and are eligible to vote absentee (see sos.mo.gov/elections) you may still go to your local election office and request and fill out a ballot until November 2 (the day before election day).

We heard someone say "Your vote is your voice".

FLASH UPDATE!

As of Today, October 9, 2020 a couple of court rulings have muddied the waters. While we suggest adhering to the rules listed on the Secretary of State website listed above, we want you to know about the rulings:

1. According to this article, a Federal judge has ruled that Missouri Election authorities should count all absentee and mail-in ballots whether they are notarized or not as long as they are received by election day.

2. And This Article says a different court ruled that mail-in ballots could be dropped off at election offices rather than mailed. The requirement that mail-in ballots can only be returned by mail would be lifted by this decision.

2A. Remeber that caution to follow the rules on the Secretary of State Website, or the part below that says these rulings may be appealed? Well this article says Mail-In Ballots MUST be mailed according to an appeals court. If you haven't done it yet, times running out!!!

Understand that these rulings may be appealed and we again suggest following the original rules laid out on the Secretary of State website if at all possible. Do know however, that the fight to make voting easier is still going on!

 

 


2020 Election Cycle Voting Information

 Although this video speaks specifically about the August 4th primary in Missouri, most of the information is valid through at least the November General Election.

We are past the last day to register for  fothe November General Election . You may request absentee or mail in ballots for the November general election until October 21, 2020. That means if you're mailing the request it needs to be submitted sooner, I'd say allow at least 5 days. If you're emailing, faxing, or taking the request to your Election Authority in person, you have until 5 pm Oct. 21.

You may walk into your local election authority and vote absentee up until the day before election day!
