Louisville—Kentucky Baptist churches gave nearly $1.5 million through the Cooperative Program in March, continuing a slight upward trend that has been underway since the start of the fiscal year last September.
“”We rejoice to think of the many souls who will be won to Christ because of the generosity of our churches,”” said Kentucky Baptist Convention Executive Director Paul Chitwood. “”Our impact is far greater when we partner together to spread the gospel, and that’s exactly what the Cooperative Program allows us to do.””
Total CP receipts through seven months of the 2014-15 fiscal year stood at about $12.4 million. That’s about $95,000 ahead of the same period last year.
“”This strong giving reflects the commitment Kentucky Baptists have to get the gospel to people within the state, across the United States and around the world,”” said Lowell Ashby, leader of the KBC’s Finance and Business Services Team. “”By participating in the Cooperative Program, Kentucky Baptists are able to do what scripture calls us to do, to spread the gospel to the uttermost part of the earth.”” (KBC)
