The BGCT Executive Board approved a change
in the funding formula for distribution of CP
contributions designated for “Texas World
Missions Initiatives.” The Missionary Transition
Fund is being dropped from the list of funded
ministries. The Baptist World Alliance (BWA) is
being added. The new breakdown: 35% for
WorldconneX, 25% for endeavors in Mexico,
20% for Texas Partnerships, 15% for
Minnesota/Wisconsin, and 5% for BWA.
The Baptist History and Heritage Society is now taking orders for a new booklet it released in late August titled The Crafts of Preaching and Writing Baptist History by Walter B. Shurden, founding executive director of The Center for Baptist Studies at Mercer University, and Wayne Flynt, distinguished university professor at Auburn University. Baptist preachers, writers, students, and professors will find this to be an excellent and highly practical resource.
To order copies today, simply call 800-966-2278. The per-copy cost is $5.00. Or send an e-mail request to Pam Durso at firstname.lastname@example.org. Give your name, address, and telephone number, and indicate the number of copies you would like.
