DALLAS (BP) -- Linda Cooper, president of national WMU, opened the report of Woman's Missionary Union to Southern Baptist Convention messengers Thursday (June 13) citing findings by the Barna Group. In a March 2018 study, Barna found 51 percent of church goers have never heard the words "the Great Commission." Another 25 percent have heard the words but can't recall the exact meaning, and 6 percent are not sure if they have heard the words. "This leaves only 17 percent of church goers who have heard the words and know their meaning," Cooper said. "How is that possible? The Great Commission is our great mandate and it is at the center of all we teach, promote and do, making disciples of Jesus who live on mission."
