Baptist and Reflector
For the year to date, Tennessee Baptists have given $19,911,390. After seven months of the 2016-17 fiscal year, gifts are $392,514 or 1.9 percent below what was given at the same time last year and are $505,277 or 2.47 percent below budget needs.
“The Cooperative Program is the great ‘missions mutual fund’ supporting compassion ministry, church planting and revitalization, collegiate ministry, missionary work, and educational and pastor preparation in Tennessee and around the globe,” said Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
“I’m very thankful for our Tennessee Baptist churches consistently and sacrificially giving beyond themselves to this cooperative effort among Tennessee and Southern Baptist Great Commission enterprises.”
