August 22, 2013
A $41 million Cooperative Program base budget for Alabama for 2014 will be recommended to convention messengers when they meet in Huntsville in November.
The recommendation was approved by the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions on Aug. 16 and reflects a $1 million decrease from the 2013 base budget.
The recommended allocation of funds is: Alabama Missions Ministries — 46.7 percent; Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Missions Ministries — 43.3 percent; and Shared Ministries — 10 percent.
Also approved were recommendations of a state causes budget of $300,000 and a SBC causes budget of $400,000.
Any receipts beyond the base budget of $41 million are to be divided 50–50 between Alabama missions causes and SBC missions causes.
