NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) Oklahoma Baptists' top leader has called for Southern Baptists to elect a president who has "demonstrated his wholehearted support" for the Cooperative Program, the channel by which Southern Baptists support state, national and international missions and ministry
Anthony Jordan, executive director of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, led a task force that has called on Southern Baptists to practice the biblical tithe. Among the task forceâ€™s various recommendations: the election of "state and national convention officers whose churches give at least 10 percent of their undesignated receipts through the Cooperative Program."
The task force report was adopted by the executives of the state Baptist conventions and the SBC Executive Committee in February.
