"Our church has benefited from the Cooperative Program in receiving specific help in the following;
- Mentoring by working with SBTC staff
- Prayer Strategist,
- Church Revitalization
- Deacon Training & countless other helps.
It’s impossible to describe the magnitude of help we have received through CP.
The Greatest thing about the CP are the relationships it has fostered which translate into church health, finically, administratively, and missionally.
CP is about people. It’s about helping churches connect a need with the right resource to meet that need.
As a pastor CP has been a lifeline connecting me to people who really care if I sink or swim in ministry."
- Lynn Crosslin, Pastor, Harmony Baptist, Weatherford
“I am a Southern Baptist because of the Cooperative Program. There is no greater financial investment to be made than partnering together to plant churches, educate seminary students, and send countless missionaries to the ends of the earth. We can do more together than we can apart!”
- Andrew Hebert, Pastor, Paramount Baptist Church
"Growing up on the mission I had the opportunity to see how the Cooperative Program made it possible for missionaries to make it to the field, thrive on the field, and have an eternal impact on lives around the globe. As a seminary student I was so grateful for the Cooperative Program because it means more God-called men and women can serve the Lord without being burdened by debt in pursuit of a theological education. I’m profoundly thankful for the Cooperative Program because I have seen firsthand that because of it we can do more together for the Gospel."
Scott Maze, Senior Pastor
NRHBC & Cross Church
“We were students at SWBTS for six and a half years. The gifts of the Cooperative Program made my education possible. The CP is still making our ministry possible. My husband is now working on his Doctoral degree at SWBTS. Because of the CP, we are able to be equipped to spread the Gospel. Thank you for making this possible!"
