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.
