Baptist and Reflector
FRANKLIN — Tennessee Baptist Convention churches contributed $2,941,530 through the Cooperative Program in July.
For the year-to-date, Tennessee Baptists have given $25,831,963.
In the midst of a pandemic, the amount is just $295,149 or 1.1 below what was given at the same time last year. In addition, gifts are $418,037 or 1.59 percent below budget needs after the first nine months of the budget year.
“Tennessee Baptists have remained so faithful in their giving through the Cooperative Program,” observed Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
“Heading into the last quarter of our fiscal year we are only 1.59 percent behind our projected budget need. In spite of a loss in revenue of well over $1,000,000 due to the effects of the coronavirus on TBMB Conference Centers and other events, we remain in a strong financial position,” Davis continued.
“We are very thankful for the provision of the Lord.”
