2001 Annual Meeting
As a result
of these efforts in His name, over 1,300 people came to know
Christ as their personal Savior. 336 received Christ through
the Block Parties, 37 through door-to-door contacts, 694 came
to a saving knowledge of our Lord through the ICE teams four-day,
inner city effort, 186 were reached through personal contacts
with individual messengers, and 95 accepted Christ through
the Evangelism Response Center phone contacts.
Jesus for a plentiful harvest of 1,348 souls for the Kingdom!
In addition to this, 175 prospects were discovered for the
local churches. Our sincere thanks to all who prayed, shared
Christ, and encouraged those who were on the front lines.
2000 Annual Meeting
year 2000, the Cooperative Program marks its 75th Anniversary,
and a national emphasis is underway to celebrate this historic
event. Partners in the Harvest is, first of all, a celebration,
recognizing the Cooperative Program's history and accomplishments,
and the men and women who have taken the message of salvation
to a lost world.
more importantly, Partners in the Harvest casts a new vision
for Southern Baptist missions. As we enter the 21st century,
the need for missions has never been more acute, the opportunity
never greater. With all of our evangelistic emphasis, there
are still millions who have never heard the name of Jesus.
To help meet this critical need, we have launched what could
be the greatest missions effort in Southern Baptist history:
Partners in the Harvest. We need your help, your prayers,
your financial support, but most of all, we need your commitment
to lead your church in this important endeavor.
1999 Annual Meeting
Baptists began intensified efforts to strengthen their unified
muscle -- the Cooperative Program -- and to use it in an invigorated
way to reach people who have not heard the gospel not only
abroad but also in the nation's mega-cities, as they met June
15-16 in Atlanta.
significant interest to Baptists at this year's annual meeting
-- the 142nd in the SBC's 154-year history -- is the OK given
by messengers to a study of the convention's statement of
beliefs, the Baptist Faith and Message, a 1963 document expanded
last year with an article on the family.
