the year 2000, the Cooperative
Program marks its 75th Anniversary, and to celebrate this historic
event, we are pleased to announce a national emphasis. Partners
in the Harvest is, first of all, a celebration, recognizing the
Program's history and accomplishments,
and the men and women who have taken the message of salvation to
a lost world.
But perhaps more importantly, Partners in the Harvest casts a new
vision for Southern Baptist missions. As we enter the 21st century,
the need for missions has never been more acute, the opportunity never
greater. With all of our evangelistic emphasis, there are still millions
who have never heard the name of Jesus. To help meet this critical
need, we want to launch what could be the greatest missions effort
in Southern Baptist history: Partners in the Harvest. We need your
help, your prayers, your financial support, but most of all, we need
your commitment to lead your church in this important endeavor.
Hear a special message from
Dr. Morris Chapman, President and Chief Executive Officer
of the SBC Executive Committee.
