The Cooperative Program

The world’s most effective system for missions giving is the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through offerings from all our churches, the Cooperative Program produces about $190 million for missions work every year. Each time you give to your church, a small portion (whatever percentage your church chooses) goes through the Cooperative Program to the mission field, starting in Illinois and then to the whole world.

For every dollar you give to your church, someone somewhere in the world is touched by the Gospel.

The Cooperative Program and you
