Cooperative Program Giving

WHAT IS THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM?

The Cooperative Program is a unified plan of giving through which cooperating Canadian National Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of the missions and ministries of their respective regions and the CNBC.

WHY GIVE?

Cooperative giving is a wonderful opportunity for our oldest and youngest, largest and smallest churches to contribute to God’s work in Canada, North America and around the world!  Every church that gives through CP participates in a comprehensive world missions movement.

HOW DID IT START?

The CNBC partners with the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) in the United States and has benefitted greatly from their generous support of our vision to see 1,000 churches by the year 2020. Southern Baptists established the CP in 1925 and it functions as the primary funding resource for our world missions thrust. Canadian Southern Baptists, now called the Canadian National Baptist Convention, formed in 1985 and adopted the CP as its primary vehicle to carry out the Great Commission.

When you give to the Cooperative Program

  • You help support national and international career and student missionaries. The CNBC partners with the International Mission Board (IMB) and the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to support thousands of missionaries.

  • You provide a new pastors’ orientation to equip new pastors with CNBC resources, to share our vision and to meet the staff and other new pastors.

  • You provide leadership training for CNBC churches and leaders through regional equipping conferences and seminars.

  • You provide an annual Oasis weekend retreat for ministry couples. Oasis provides rest renewal and refreshment both spiritually and physically.

  • You support disaster relief through Canadian Global Response (CGR). CGR is a largely volunteer based charity for disaster relief, community development, and the alleviation of poverty.
