BRENTWOOD — Tennessee Baptist Convention churches gave $2,768,320 through the Cooperative Program in June.
After eight months of the current fiscal year, Tennessee Baptists have given $22,399,423.
The amount is $54,421 or 0.2 percent over what was given during the same time frame last year.
The total, however, is $433,910 or 1.90 percent below budget needs for the year.
TBC Executive Director Randy C. Davis noted that in the July 1 issue of the Baptist and Reflector there was an article about more than 13,000 people coming through the Jesus Tent at Bonnaroo.
They were served by Tennessee Baptists who introduced them to Christ and many were saved, he observed.
“That’s Great Commission giving through the Cooperative Program at work in Tennessee. Thank you TBC churches for your faithful giving,” he said.
