“I believe in the Cooperative Program, because it is one of the most effective tools to help churches fulfill the mission mandate of Acts 1:8. When we give through the Cooperative Program, we are able to reach people and places with the Gospel message that we as individuals could never reach. Our gifts have a multiplied effect when combined with the gifts of other Christians and churches to fund ministries around the state, nation and world. Truly, we can do more together than we can separately. As a pastor, it is great to talk about ministries like disaster relief, theological education, church planting, church revitalization, campus ministries and missions partnerships around the world and say ‘We are part of that; that is our gifts at work’ because of the Cooperative Program.”
