Missions, The Heart of Our Ministry
Missions is so important at Meridian that nearly one of every five dollars received is
redistributed through various partner agencies for mission work. This is done through four primary channels[
The Cooperative Program
Southern Baptists are a fellowship of almost 16 million members in approximately 45,764 churches
in all 50 states and Canada. These churches work together through approximately 1,174 associations, 42 state
conventions, and the Southern Baptist Convention to accomplish through voluntary cooperation far more than they could
ever do alone.
The Southern Baptist worldwide missions enterprise is funded in large part through the unique,
efficient, and equitable Cooperative Program. A portion of the undesignated tithes and offerings of individuals
received by SBC churches becomes Cooperative Program dollars.
San Diego Southern Baptist Association
Nearly 200 churches have agreed to partner together to serve the San Diego community at large.
