Impact reports like this one tell a story. It’s a story of God inviting us into community and equipping us for faithful ministry. It’s a story of transformation—God’s transformation of the world through Jesus Christ.
And there’s little question God gives us both what we need to be vessels for transformation and to be transformed ourselves. The issue is whether we will accept the invitation, use what we’ve been given and join in God’s holy work in the world. As a Fellowship, we do this together.
I hope this report gives you a sense of the global, intergenerational, generous work of Cooperative Baptists in response to the call of the Triune God. Together, we are engaged in a mission and ministry in our communities and all around the world that is abundantly far more than anything any of us or any one congregation could do on our own.
More and more, when we Cooperative Baptists speak of “fellowship,” we refer to a community of congregations, individuals, field personnel, theological schools, chaplains, pastoral counselors and other partners from different generations and geographies that are bound together in relationship.
This community, this Fellowship, responds to crises in the United States and around the world through our disaster response ministries. We support field personnel and partners with prayer and financial support as they minister to refugees fleeing war and violence in places like Ukraine. We provide student mission and church internships to equip students, to be equipped by them and to equip the Church. We support our annual General Assembly, where you and 1,500-plus of your fellow Cooperative Baptists are able to gather, to learn and to grow. We do this and so much more.
In these pages, celebrate the power of our collaboration. Learn more about our Fellowship and the impact of our work together. And then accept the invitation to deepen this community where we are equipped for bold faithfulness.

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship is a network of churches, individuals and partners inviting each other into deeper community, equipping each other for ministry and seeking the transformation of God’s world.
We pursue a bold and powerful witness in our communities and around the world that none of us can do on our own. As a Fellowship, we unleash all the powerful gifts we’ve been given to meet the urgent needs of our churches and our communities.
Our diverse community includes partners all over the world, and our Fellowship supports a wide range of missions and ministries that give people meaningful opportunities to put their faith to action. With a deep respect for freedom, diversity and equality, we encourage autonomy while inviting dynamic collaboration.
Our understanding of Baptist faith and practice is expressed by our emphasis on freedom in biblical interpretation and congregational governance, the participation of women and men in all aspects of church leadership and Christian ministry, and religious liberty for all people.
CBF is innovative congregations, gifted and called field personnel bearing witness to Jesus Christ around the world, nearly 1,200 endorsed chaplains and pastoral counselors, 17 state and regional organizations, dozens of theological schools and partner organizations and so much more.
As Cooperative Baptists, God invites us and equips us to share and spread the hope of Christ. Whether we’re feeding the hungry, advocating for the unheard, nurturing a young person’s calling to ministry, endorsing a chaplain to serve or helping families get back on their feet after a disaster, we and those with whom we minister experience transformation.
We invite you to join us. Become part of the story. Become part of this Fellowship.

SHARING GOD’S LOVE IN WORD & DEED
CBF Global Missions shares God’s message of hope and love in real ways to some of the most marginalized and vulnerable people in the world—people living in extreme poverty, refugee children and families fleeing violence in search of a safe haven, women who are trafficked, and families who have lost everything through a hurricane, earthquake or other natural disaster. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we cultivate beloved community, bear witness to Jesus Christ and seek transformational development among people and places otherwise forgotten and forsaken. Our field personnel serve alongside congregations within three primary contexts: global poverty, global migration and the Global Church.

TOGETHER FOR HOPE
TRANSFORMING RURAL AMERICA
Together for Hope is a rural development coalition engaging the 301 counties of persistent rural poverty in America. We believe asset-based community development is the best first step in fighting poverty in rural spaces. To that end, we work with communities to hear their dreams and begin to take steps toward those visions. Within these communities, Together for Hope holistically fights poverty focusing on four priorities of hope: Education, Health & Nutrition, Housing & Environment and Social Enterprise.

Appalachian Gold is a new food brand featuring a series of products, including salad dressings, infused oils, hot honeys and maple syrups grown on the family farm of Jason Tartt in West Virginia. This farm and these products help drive economic development and build Appalachia’s sustainable future. Appalachian Gold draws together several organizational partners to bring the brand to life, including T & T Organics, Y’all Sauce, EDGE and Together for Hope.
“We want local communities to be proud to represent this brand. For food producers, we support their work and want to make sure they can financially continue to do it with dignity. The agricultural system does not really have a handle on supporting small farmers, Black farmers, beginning farmers or people who do things on a small scale.”

The annual commissioning of CBF-endorsed chaplains and pastoral counselors is a special service of blessing and sending forth for these ordained ministers of the Gospel.
CHAPLAINCY & PASTORAL COUNSELING
THE IMPACT OF COMPASSIONATE PRESENCE
Since 1998, CBF has endorsed nearly 1,200 chaplains and pastoral counselors to serve in specialized ministry settings. Endorsement denotes that a minister is ecclesiastically qualified and has been vetted as being spiritually, emotionally, educationally and clinically prepared to serve in specialized ministries. Ecclesiastical endorsement is an essential requirement of employment for chaplains and pastoral counselors. CBF-endorsed chaplains and pastoral counselors represent our Fellowship with excellence, serving as a critical ministry of the Fellowship, embodying compassionate presence in our communities, offering God’s love and the hope of Christ to all, as together in fellowship, we work to further God’s kingdom.

CBF Advocacy is rooted in the same spirit and call that motivate our mission endeavors: to demonstrate the love of Christ by loving our most neglected and marginalized neighbors. As Christians dedicated to service, we often encounter situations and issues in need of a strong voice. Such encounters create passionate advocates in our churches and among those serving across the globe. CBF Advocacy is about encouraging, equipping and promoting the voice of advocates in our midst as they encounter need. In doing so, we strive to exercise responsible Christian citizenship by modeling a more effective, positive and inclusive public witness for the church.
