Using a smaller investment to gain a greater return is “leverage.” A local association is in a position to leverage the work of churches, whether small or large, for a greater impact.
Suppose a church in the suburbs believes the Lord is calling it to minister with a church in the city core of Dallas. Because that church is part of an association of churches, it can build upon ministries and relationships already developed, rather than starting from scratch. The association can make the church aware of potential partners and lessons learned by experience in ministries in similar areas.
Thank you for your support of Dallas Baptist Association. Our churches provide 100 percent of our operating budget. When you give, you are helping to provide the connections, proximity, and leverage for advancing God’s Kingdom in Dallas.
