Your church puts most of that money to work bearing witness right in your own community. The church then decides how much money to invest in missions through the Cooperative Program.
Your church sends its CP contribution to the Kentucky Baptist Convention, where half of the funds are used to strengthen churches, plant new churches, mobilize believers to be on missions, educate the next generation of Christian leaders, and more. The remaining half is forwarded on to the Southern Baptist Convention.
The SBC distributes Cooperative Program funds for missions and ministry causes around the world, mobilizing resources to bear witness across North America and to the ends of the earth.
