Ministry Relationships with Other Organizations
In order to keep missions and evangelism at the forefront of our work, the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention seeks ministry relationships of like belief and compatible mission to extend the ministry of affiliated churches. Our working relationships with educational institutions, family care ministries, and other related ministries allow us to provide full service to churches without building new institutions.
