Southern Baptists are a fellowship of almost 16 million members in approximately 45,764 churches in all 50 states and Canada. These churches work together through approximately 1,174 associations, 42 state conventions, and the Southern Baptist Convention to accomplish through voluntary cooperation far more than they could ever do alone.
The Southern Baptist worldwide missions enterprise is funded in large part through the unique, efficient, and equitable Cooperative Program. A portion of the undesignated tithes and offerings of individuals received by SBC churches becomes Cooperative Program dollars.
Wallace & Cumberland give 10.3% of all undesignated receipts (your tithes & offerings) to the Cooperative Program that helps fund the missions and ministries of the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the SBC's International Missions Board, North American Missions Board, Six Seminaries and other important eftorts. Additionally, Wallace Memorial supports our local Knox County Association of Baptist for local training and benevolence.
