BRENTWOOD — Tennessee Baptist Convention churches gave $2,554,264 through the Cooperative Program in May.
For the year-to-date, Tennessee Baptists have given a total of $19,631,103.
The amount is $535,536 or 2.7 percent below what was given during the same time frame last year.
After seven months of the 2014-15 fiscal year, the total is $348,064 or 1.74 percent below budget needs.
“The key component of our Cooperative Program giving consistently and sacrificially is not the financial support demonstrated month after month, but cooperation around doing ministry and missions together,” observed Randy C. Davis, executive director/treasurer of the Tennessee Baptist Convention.
“I am thankful for the cooperation of so many Tennessee Baptists to lock hearts and arms together for the cause of Christ across our beloved state!”
