Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio awarded a $1 million grant

The Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio awarded a $1 million grant to the Baptist General Convention of Texas to fund health initiatives for South Texas churches and their ministers.

Over five years, the grant will be used for three initiatives—a “pastor to pastors” staff position to develop deeper interpersonal relationships with area pastors; a financial relief fund to offer financial aid to alleviate stress and anxiety for pastors; and church health conferences and retreats, designed to strengthen awareness and knowledge around holistic health services and practices.

“We are grateful to the Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio for their generous investment and entrustment to Texas Baptists to provide for the health of our church leaders in South Texas,” BGCT Executive Director David Hardage said. “We know this $1 million grant will help alleviate the financial burden of many ministers and provide for the long-term health of our congregations.” [Read more].
