Join the Call for Reform
The changes needed in NAMB are not just personnel changes, but policy. We cannot keep the same rules and expect that this will never happen again.
We need to implement changes that create transparency in NAMB and create policies that hold leadership accountable for their performance and their behavior. The time of operating in secret and threatening those we disagree with needs to end.
Below are eight key policy changes that we believe are needed to repair the partnerships, restore transparency, revive accountability in NAMB.
- Remove NDA's between State Conventions and NAMB relating to the strategic partnerships.
- Remove Non-disparagement clauses from current and past employee contracts. NAMB should be able to withstand and answer criticisms from those in it.
- Prohibit NAMB prohibit the use of private threats, whether financial or legal, against state conventions, journalists, trustees or other SBC members.
- Require trustees to investigate both the offended and offending parties when concerns or violations are reported.
- Provide clear church planting data so that SBC members can review the claims made by NAMB themselves.
- Report which churches are receiving resources, funds or real-estate, to ensure that resources are appropriately being allocated and not favoring NAMB leaders, trustees, or mega churches.
- Provide clear expense reporting, such as using a form 990, so that SBC members can verify that their donations are being handled appropriately.
