Southern Baptists in Texas contributed to the annual Reach Texas state missions offering in record-setting fashion, SBTC Executive Director Dr. Nathan Lorick announced Monday via Twitter.
This year’s Reach Texas offering came in at $1,527,969 — exceeding the statewide challenge goal by nearly a quarter-million dollars. The figure also exceeded last year’s giving total by $239,000.
“The churches of the SBTC continue to be incredibly generous and have a strong desire to see the gospel advance across Texas,” Lorick said. “We absolutely believe that God is going to use this offering to further His kingdom through the missional ministries of the SBTC. Great days are ahead.”
Reach Texas giving is collected year-round, but churches participate in a Week of Prayer and offering emphasis during the month of September. One hundred percent of Reach Texas giving is spent on missions and evangelism strategies, including disaster relief and church planting.
The next SBC missions offering is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, which supports international missions efforts. The Week of Prayer for the offering will be November 28-December 5.
