You can help me stop a religious Goliath, a bully who is intent on running out the clock and depleting me of willpower and money as Sandy and I seek legal justice. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) President Kevin Ezell not only placed a $1 million per year threat against my former employer to have me terminated, he followed me to further damage my ability to work and provide for my family. This blackballing by Ezell/NAMB resulted in 4 years without employment or income. After seeking resolution without an attorney and after two threats from NAMB attorneys, we finally found an attorney and responded with a lawsuit in 2017.
I am asking that you invest in us by helping to cover our legal expenses as we deal with NAMB's unending delays and false legal claims. We expect that our legal expenses could reach $100,000 if we go through trial and appeals.
In spite of having a team of 16 high-profile attorneys, multiple national law firms, 17 State Attorney Generals, and over 35 signers of amicus briefs, NAMB lost to my one attorney who handed NAMB and its president, Kevin Ezell, a defeat by the U.S. Supreme Court this summer (after handing NAMB two defeats last year in the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals by both a three-judge panel decision and a decision of all 17 justices).
SBC mission gifts cover the legal expenses of NAMB (a $400 million corporation), while Sandy and I cover our own legal expenses as we seek our day in court.
Now, Sandy and I can put Kevin Ezell, as well as past and present trustees and staff, under oath for deposition (sworn testimony to gather evidence) that is part of the trial process.
Sandy and I are “in it to win it” against Goliath. Moreover, we are gaining momentum. God has blessed us with another attorney who has joined our team, Scott Gant of Boies Schiller Flexner of Washington DC. He helped us win a favorable decision with SCOTUS in the summer of 2021, filed the response to NAMB's false claim of being a Supporting Organization in Sept. 2021 and will be running point on our case as we go to trial in federal district court.
Please help us financially with our legal expenses as we seek justice. Then, please encourage others to join our team with their support.
Thank you kindly!
Will and Sandy McRaney
Dr. Randy Adams - Executive Director Northwest Baptist Convention
"As Will McRaney seeks justice for the wrongs done to him, he is also exposing corruption, revealing abuses, and defending the autonomy of Baptist churches, Associations and State Conventions from the dangerous claim that NAMB is a "supporting organization" of state conventions, and that it has the right to interfere in the work of the those it claims to "support." Please join me and many others who support Will and Sandy as they fight not only for justice for themselves, but fight for all of us and defend the Baptist Way."
