Southern Baptists’ Cooperative Program has grassroots support at Southern Hills Baptist Church, pastor Doug Melton reports, because missions has “captured the heart of our people.” Notes missions pastor James Biesiadecki of the Oklahoma City congregation, “It says a lot that our church is doing a lot on our own” in a variety of ministries. “But the reality is that we’re in this together with all Southern Baptist churches.” The Cooperative Program is the Southern Baptist method of supporting missions and ministry efforts of state conventions and the Southern Baptist Convention.
