Opportunities for designated gifts
Texas Baptist Missions Foundation
Each year, the TBMF Council votes to approve grants that support a variety of ministry projects such as providing chaplaincy services to county jail inmates and an affordable retreat for special needs individuals and their caregivers.
Texas Baptists Camp Relief Fund
Lives are changed every summer through the ministries of Texas Baptist camps. Strategically located throughout the state, Texas Baptist camps rejoice to see hundreds of young people trust Christ, recommit their lives to Him, and answer His call to vocational ministry. Today, Texas Baptist camps find themselves in a precarious situation. The economic shutdown and pandemic concerns caused many cancellations and shortened the summer season. Despite these realities, Texas Baptist camps are committed to fulfilling the ministry to which God has called them.
Texas Baptist Pastor Relief Fund
The financial disruption caused by the spread of COVID-19 has been especially challenging for bivocational and small church pastors across our Texas Baptist family. Following the launch of our Texas Baptist Pastor Relief Grant, applications for financial assistance began pouring in. Please consider a generous gift that will provide critically needed assistance for these pastors who are dealing with the financial challenges of COVID-19. Through this pandemic, God is opening up new and exciting ministry opportunities for churches to continue to share Christ and show love.
New Church Starts
Together we have raised over $660,000 to start new churches in Texas. A gift of any size can make an eternal impact.
Some 795 million people - or 1 in 9 people on earth - are reported to be undernourished. The Texas Baptist Hunger Offering seeks to empower those in need by funding relief and development projects that are holistic and sustainable.
Missionary Adoption Program
The Missionary Adoption Program partners individuals or churches in the US with churches in a host country to jointly sponsor a missionary. These missionaries focus on evangelism, discipleship and church planting. Local Baptist entities provide training, support and regular check-ins. Financial support starts at $150.00 a month with Brazilian churches providing matching funds.
