The Baptist State Convention of Michigan heard Executive Director Tim Patterson’s vision for 500 churches by 2025, and toured the convention’s new office facilities at the BSCM leadership conference and annual meeting. Messengers also heard guest speakers from both inside and outside the state.

One hundred seventy messengers represented 55 of the convention’s more than 300 churches, and 33 guests brought the total attendance to 203 at Mile City Church in Plymouth, Mich., Nov. 8. The meeting’s theme was “Re-envision God’s Desire.”

The 2020 budget of $2,284,138 — a roughly 20 percent decrease from the current year — anticipates $1,200,000 in Cooperative Program giving from churches.

The Convention will forward 27.5 percent of CP receipts to Southern Baptist Convention national and international causes, the same percentage forwarded in 2019.
