When I was a young pastor, I came under the influence of men and women who taught me the importance of the Cooperative Program. I remain to this day thankful for their contribution to my life and ministry. It is my responsibility to share with younger pastors the importance of the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative Program allows every church and every church member to have a part in carrying out the Great Commission.
