Throughout her life, Reba Cobb has learned that religious liberty and separation of church and state are a critical part of Baptist identity. But, it wasn’t until she heard James Dunn speak during seminary that she first learned of the work of the Baptist Joint Committee.
Cobb values the BJC’s unique position to influence public opinion as a leading advocate for religious liberty in the nation’s capital. “Our staff is much sought after as experts on religious liberty and separation of church and state. Over the years, the BJC has developed strong credibility with Congress, the courts, and citizens alike,” she said.
Cobb began annually supporting the BJC nearly two decades ago. “I give to the BJC because it is important. Even though religious liberty is the law of the land, it is constantly under attack and even ignored. The BJC is prepared to strongly defend religious liberty,” she said.
Cobb’s deep love for the BJC and the First Amendment led her to include the BJC in her estate plans. “I chose to remember the BJC in my will because the work of the BJC can be sustained for years to come if we all give to the endowment,” she said.
A planned gift to the BJC is the best way to strengthen our mission for the future, and it is a powerful way for our committed friends to continue to have a place in our work for many generations. Ensure that our history will always have a future by remembering the BJC in your will.
