Volunteer State Missions Offering
Missions is the heartbeat of Tennessee Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (TCBF). We take seriously Jesus’ words recorded in Matthew 25:31-46 about the necessity of caring for the poor and oppressed. The call to be the presence of Christ in the world means we are intentional about serving “the least of these.”
To that end, TCBF annually promotes the Volunteer State Missions Offering. Since the offering began, congregations and individuals across Tennessee have given generously to designated mission and ministry projects across the state and beyond. We celebrate this significant accomplishment and the ways God used these generous donations to meet human need in Jesus’ name.
Our goal for 2018-19 is $22,000.
When you invest in the Volunteer State Missions Offering during 2018-19, you invest in the following Kingdom ministries:
- Samaritan Ministry, Knoxville | $10,000
- Olive Branch Ministries - Scott County, TN | $5,000
- Neverfail Community Church, Sparta | $2,500

Your church decides when to focus on the Volunteer State Missions Offering (any time between now and June 30). Whenever you promote the Offering, we stand ready to assist you with promotional materials, bulletin inserts, and speakers.
