Baptist and Reflector
For the month of October, Tennessee Baptists gave $2,827,483.
For the year-to-date, Tennessee Baptists gave $34,914,459. The amount is $710,916 or 2.1 percent over what was given for 2019-20 and fell just $85,541 or 0.24 percent of the budget goal of $35 million.
The last time Tennessee Baptist CP gifts exceeded $35 million was in 2011-12 when churches gave $35,684,975 through the Cooperative Program.
“Tennessee Baptist churches are focused on supporting global missions, local ministry, Christian education and compassionate outreach,” observed Randy C. Davis, president and executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board.
“The evidence is in the consistent giving through the Cooperative Program by TBC churches,” Davis said. “We are not discouraged nor distracted by anything Hell throws at us!
Davis added: “On behalf of TBC and SBC ministries, thank you Tennessee Baptists for keeping the main thing (the Great Commission) the main thing!” B&R
