How it works
Each church must choose how the money it gives through the Cooperative Program will be designated. The BGCT adopted budget calls for a 79% / 21% breakdown. This means that 79% of the money your church gives stays at work in Texas and 21% goes to the international missions partner of your choice (SBC, CBF, BGCT). However, your church can choose whichever percentage breakdown God is leading you to give.
Where it goes
It goes to missions, evangelism and ministry.
It goes to a myriad of missions, evangelism and ministry projects that are compiled into an annual budget and then approved by the Executive Board and then the Convention as a whole.
A breakdown of the 2011 missions budget is available in the Budget Summary.
