Cooperative Program

Every time you drop a dollar in the offering plate of a church that participates in the Cooperative Program, you help someone hear the story of Jesus.

Southern Baptist churches voluntarily send a percentage or a specified amount of their regular offerings to the state convention. The state convention keeps approximately two-thirds of those funds and the balance is sent to the Southern Baptist Executive Committee in Nashville. The Executive Committee distributes those funds to Southern Baptist agencies. The International Mission Board (IMB) currently receives half of the funds sent to the Executive Committee. Cooperative Program funds represents about 30 percent of the IMB's annual budget.
