The amount also is $104,572 or 0.30 percent over budget needs for 2017-18. The fiscal year ended Oct. 31.
Tennessee Baptists last met the budget in 2015-16.
“Last November the Tennessee Baptist Convention adopted a Cooperative Program budget of $34,500,000,” said Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
“It is a real joy that we’ve seen Tennessee Baptists meet and exceed that financial goal to support church centered and field focused Great Commission work in Tennessee and around the globe! Congratulations and praise the Lord!”
