The Cooperative Program is Southern Baptists’ unified plan of giving through which cooperating Southern Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries.
Engaging Tough Areas of West Virginia [West Virginia] MATT and CHRISSY SHAMBLIN serve in West Virginia,
where Matt serves as an evangelism missionary for the West Virginia
Convention of Southern Baptists. Matt helps churches engage their
communities with the gospel. Many churches in West Virginia are
smaller than average churches elsewhere. It is also a place of great
physical need. Your gifts help the Shamblins share Christ in a very
difficult area of North America. Pray that pastors in West Virginia will
persevere through tough circumstances. Also, pray for new churches
to be planted in the state and that existing churches would have a
renewed commitment to engage their community with the gospel.

Bringing Millennials to Christ [Wisconsin] CARL GRIFFIN was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When
he was 4 years old, his mother moved them to Mississippi where
Carl, at the age of 10, accepted Christ as his Savior. Today he and
his wife, LINDA, serve in Milwaukee focusing primarily on bringing
millennials to Christ. In 2012, Carl planted New Life Baptist Church
in a racially diverse, middle-income neighborhood. Their vision is
to “make disciples the way Jesus does.” New members spend the
first six months in discipleship training and are then assigned to a
small group for continued discipleship and disciple making training.
Pray God will continue to grow New Life, and support the efforts in
Wisconsin by giving through the Cooperative Program.
