November 10, 2023 - Press Release from the NMBCH Board of Directors

The New Mexico Baptist Children's Home has been made aware of the arrest of its former Executive Director, Dr. David Randall "Randy" Rankin.


Mr. Rankin's employment with the New Mexico Baptist Children's Home terminated on January 21, 2022. The Board of Directors immediately took action to ensure financial accountability by engaging professionals to review prior activities and incorporating new finance policies and procedures including instituting separation of duties within the financial aspects of the organization. 


The New Mexico Baptist Children's Home has engaged new auditors and accountants and is currently seeking accreditation through the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability. The goal is to be an excellent steward of all The Lord has provided, ensure donor and supporter confidence, and operate at the highest standards of transparency and accountability. 


The ministry of the New Mexico Baptist Children's Home is to bring hope to hurting children and families. We are thankful to our many supporters who have faithfully remembered the children in their giving. Many have reached out to express love and prayer for the work being done and we are grateful for this care. 


As we navigate a difficult situation, we ask faithful believers to keep all involved in their prayers.
