Lottie Moon Katie McKown.

In 1873 Lottie Moon was appointed by the SBC's Foreign Mission Board as a missionary to China. She remained a foreign missionary in China for 39 years, until her death in 1912. The Baptist Standard reports that Lottie Moon’s home church is now led by a woman pastor,* a concept opposed to the SBC's Baptist Faith and Message statement: "...the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture."

This turn of events seems to be wryly reported by SBC opponents such as the BGCTexas and the CBF, and un/under-reported by Convention media. 

* This church is not now affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.
