It is the largest single monthly amount ever and the first time CP gifts have exceeded $4 million in a month for more than a decade. It is the largest monthly amount since Tennessee Baptists gave $4,019,171 in December of 2008.

After the first quarter of the 2019-20 fiscal year, receipts are $749,996 or 8.57 percent above budget needs.

Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. “This is worth celebrating! Great work and generous giving to support the Great Commission from our wonderful and diverse network of churches. Thank you!”
