Mission:Dignity® recipients in Texas again blessed with 13th checks thanks to efforts of the SBTC



Mission:Dignity® recipients in Texas received an extra blessing to start the year thanks to the efforts of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention.

For the third year in a row, recipients received this “13th Check” due to state convention efforts. The benefit is made available to every Mission:Dignity recipient in the state.

“These gifts from our friends at the SBTC ensure that our recipients here in Texas will have an extra blessing to look forward to,” said Mission:Dignity director Aaron Meraz. “I’m thankful for Nathan Lorick and the SBTC leadership for their commitment to our recipients.”

Last year, 20 state conventions and/or foundations provided extra benefits like the 13th check to Mission:Dignity recipients.

“It is a joy for the SBTC to be able to provide a 13th check to Mission Dignity,” said Nathan Lorick, executive director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. “These recipients are heroes who have faithfully served the Lord and His church! I am grateful for the heart and generosity of SBTC churches to be a blessing to those who have gone before us.”

GuideStone® President Hance Dilbeck offered his thanks on behalf of Mission:Dignity’s recipients.

“Ministry partners like the SBTC have caught a vision to care for retired pastors, Southern Baptist workers and their widows who need some extra help in their latter years,” Dilbeck said. “We are thankful for their efforts to be the very hands and feet of Christ in serving these good and godly people.”
