A Message from the Executive Director
Imagine helping a prison inmate in Jefferson City earn a four-year biblical studies degree from Hannibal-LaGrange University, and thus transform the prison culture as a trained missionary. Or making it possible to launch new student ministries at Missouri’s technical colleges, where no ministries currently exist. Or connecting a lonely senior citizen with a campus minister at The Baptist Home.
You can engage in these ministries – and many more – as you give to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering. Our annual state missions offering supports 18 ministries. These include Christian foster care, rescue from human trafficking, ministries to senior adults, summer missions, disaster relief, church revitalization, and other projects that help transform lives and communities with the gospel.
The theme of this year’s offering is taken from 1 Chronicles 29:9. When the Israelites saw King David and other leaders give sacrificially to the construction of the temple, they rejoiced because their leaders had given willingly, “for with a whole heart they had offered freely to the Lord.”
What a privilege Missouri Baptists have to contribute to God’s work of building a place for His presence in the hearts of people across our state.
Last year, 785 Missouri Baptist churches supported MMO, and we are praying that number tops 900 this year. If your church hasn’t been receiving an MMO offering, please review the resources in this promotional packet and bless your people with an opportunity give willingly to the Lord’s work across our state.
All materials in this packet are provided free of charge – whether you download or order them from the MBC. Our goal this year is $725,000. You can make a difference. We are trusting God to provide – and to receive the glory as a result of your church’s gift of support through MMO.
