Travel Assistance Fund for Events

Purpose:
The Travel Assistance Fund for Events (TAFFE) is a fund designated by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Ministries Council to provide financial assistance to individuals with limited means to attend special CBF gatherings and events. In its September 2017 meeting, the Ministries Council agreed that the fund will be used this year to facilitate greater attendance at the 2018 General Assembly in Dallas, Texas (June 11-15, 2018). Recipients will receive a grant of up to $500 to assist with travel and lodging.

While all lay people active or interested in the CBF are eligible to receive a grant, we encourage pastors to invite strategic, particularly young or emerging, lay leaders who will advocate for and help tell the story of CBF in the church. Particular consideration will be given to first-time attendees and those who will need to travel great distances to attend the General Assembly.

Process:
Pastors (and not lay people) will fill out an application. The pastor may advise that some financial assistance might be available. CBF will not be able to cover the totality of an attendee's expense. Churches are also encouraged to provide financial assistance to the attendee, if needed.

Pastors may apply online here.

OR Pastors may apply by filling out the attached application and mailing it to:
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
c/o TAFFE Application
160 Clairemont Avenue, Suite 500
Decatur, GA 30030

The application deadline is April 23, 2018.

A sub-committee of the Ministries Council will review all applications, and notification to Pastors of awards will be made by May 11, followed by checks mailed to churches.

Other information:

  • The Ministries Council will host the recipients and will make introductions, and offer advice and direction for how best to experience the General Assembly.
  • All TAFFE recipients are asked to submit an evaluation of General Assembly and the impact the experience had on the individual and how it will influence the ministry of the local church.
  • We ask that TAFFE recipients write a blog post on their General Assembly experience for publication on the CBF website. (Directions will be provided later.)
  • Recipients are strongly encouraged to report back to their congregations their General Assembly experience.
