Top CP-giving churches named for 2006

 

The Cooperative Program is the Southern Baptist way of funding missions that makes it possible for every Baptist church member to be involved in changing lives for Christ. With more than 10,000 missionaries on the field in the United States and across the globe, every Southern Baptist is part of the task of reaching every person with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

“I know personally what it feels like to know that Southern Baptists at home are praying and giving to support missionaries. It’s a lifeline,” said Allen Hill, a former missionary to the Philippines and currently, the Cooperative Program specialist at the GBC.

Listed below are the churches who gave the top dollar amount in each category. Categories are listed according to the undesignated receipts for the year 2006 – usually the annual budget of the church. The numbers listed with church names is the amount given through the Cooprativee Program in 2006.
