INTRODUCTION – Who, What, When & Why
Matriarch Mrs. Mel M. (Gail) Tompkins is among the 100 families that include retired missionaries and pastors, widows and others that SBC entity LifeWay evicted from Glorieta Conference Center in New Mexico. LifeWay paid Kirk and Susie Tompkins “zero” dollars for their Glorieta property.
Tompkins' Family litigation alleges LifeWay trustees’ recommendation to sell Glorieta FAILED SBC approval, thus, LifeWay had no authority to sell Glorieta. Litigation is in U.S. District Court for N.M.
U. S. 10th Court Confirmed Southern Baptist Convention paid Glorieta homeowners “zero” dollars, asking LifeWay if they had any “moral responsibility”!
The same year LifeWay claimed a "$1-Million" financial loss, its alleged illegal action was responsible for the $1.00 sale of Glorieta, recently appraised at $210 million, LifeWay’s parent SBC’s Executive Committee financial statement confirms $8 Billion in "undesignated" (surplus) cash...
A lawsuit on behalf of elderly Glorieta homeowners now in its 5th Year exposes "LifeWay's" alleged abuses of SBC ByLaws, further, allegedly its leadership looted SBC of its now demolished Nashville property, again, without “Convention” approval.
