Reach Texas Missions Offering emphasis slated for late September; $1.3 million-goal set
Nearly 27 million people inhabit the state of Texas—an ever-increasing number representing nations and people from around the globe. Statistically, in order to keep pace with the 12 percent population growth experienced since 2010, as many as 30 rural and 1,000 urban churches must be planted each year. While messengers to the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention have designated the largest portion of their in-state budget to evangelism and missions, giving $4.5 million to those specific gospel tasks in 2015, they desire to do more.
