NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Southern Baptist Convention's Lifeway Christian Resources has announced a deal to sell a financially troubled conference center in New Mexico to Olivet University.

But first, Lifeway is conducting "a comprehensive review of the theological compatibility of the organizations."

The Tennessean reports that critics say Olivet and its denomination have great websites but little substance. And questions remain about Olivet founder the Rev. David Jang, a Korean immigrant who was investigated for his teachings in Asia.

Lifeway previously offered to sell its 2,100-acre Glorieta campus to the Baptist Convention of New Mexico for $1. That group rejected the offer over concerns about deferred maintenance costs.

Olivet currently is renting space at Glorieta.
