Why I Believe in the Cooperative Program

The following stories are the most recent examples of why I support the Cooperative Program. Recently, a young lady in our church accepted the call to serve in missions. Following her decision, she has enrolled at Boyce College with the intention to pursue missionary training at Southern Seminary. The cost of her education is minimized because of the Cooperative Program. Therefore, the Cooperative Program is helping someone fulfill her calling, who may not otherwise have the means to do so. In addition, the Cooperative Program has provided finances and personnel to help our Cherokee Baptist Association provide ministry enhancement conferences. These conferences are a blessing to the churches in our association, and they would not be possible without the help of Alabama Baptists and the Cooperative Program. For those reasons, I am grateful for the Cooperative Program and fully supportive of it! —
