Beyond the walls

“Participating (cooperatively) helps us accomplish our mission not only locally, but also globally.  Just as Jesus multiplied what was placed in His hands by the young lad, so too, the Cooperative Program multiplies the influence and Gospel impact of our congregation worldwide.” Bro. Stan

By designating a portion of our church budget for the Cooperative Program and collecting a World Missions Offering each year, Pioneer supports the ministry of Baptist organizations such as the International Mission Board, North American Mission Board, Baptist General Convention of Texas, World Hunger Offering, and Abilene-Callahan Baptist Association. We also partner and work more closely with friends in Texas, Arkansas/North Dakota, NYC, Guatemala, Romania, and SE Asia.
