The president of the Southern Baptist Convention's domestic missions agency resigned Monday, two months after a Georgia Baptist newspaper raised questions about his leadership.

The Rev. Robert Reccord had headed the North American Mission Board, based in Alpharetta, since it was created from three other agencies in 1997. With a 2006 budget of $124 million, the agency is responsible for the 15-million-member denomination's new churches, evangelism, disaster relief and broadcast ministries in the United States and Canada."
