Attendees at the 2014 CBF General Assembly in Atlanta contributed nearly $34,000 to CBF’s Global Missions work through offerings taken each night of the meeting.
Over the course of three nights at the General Assembly – on June 25 at the Co-Missioning Celebration and at worship services June 26 and 27 – Cooperative Baptists were challenged to support partner-funded field personnel, the Offering for Global Missions and Together for Hope.

CBF’s partner-funded field personnel are commissioned ministers who engage in close, collaborative relationships with churches, agencies, small groups and individuals to faithfully answer God’s call to serve among the most neglected around the world. Nearly 50 percent of CBF field personnel are partner-funded, raising the majority of their financial support.
Gifts to CBF’s Offering for Global Missions impact the work of all 125 CBF field personnel ministering in more than 30 countries on five continents. The Offering is the foundational means of support for the CBF missions enterprise and provides access to a wide array of tools and resources to serve people and equip churches.
Together for Hope is a long-term commitment to working with people in more than 25 of the nation’s poorest counties and parishes to affect change and break the cycle of economic disparity. The ministry is about establishing long-term relationships, listening, learning and walking alongside local leaders.
