Missouri Missions Offering

For the second straight year, Missouri Baptists gave more than $900,000 to state missions through the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO), continuing a decade-long trend of rising financial support to statewide projects ranging from foster care to prison ministry.

MMO receipts in 2023, which are disbursed in 2024, totaled $926,010, far outpacing the goal of $750,000. 

Further, 2023 marked the 11th straight year of MMO receipts above $700,000. The number of churches contributing to MMO rose slightly to 692, up from 679 the previous year.

Missouri Baptists responded enthusiastically to the MMO theme of Romans 10:15, in which the apostle Paul exclaims, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.”

MBC Executive Director-Treasurer Wes Fowler expressed profound gratitude for Missouri Baptists’ commitment to sacrificial giving: “In a year of lingering inflation, high interest rates, and a roller-coaster stock market ride, Missouri Baptists kept the Great Commission in focus, giving steadfastly, trusting in the providence of God, and sacrificially supporting the Lord’s work across our state.”

All this – and much more – is possible only because your church members give faithfully to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO). Our annual state missions offering supports more than two dozen ministries. These include Christian foster care, 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 Romans 10:15, where Paul declares: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.” How beautiful indeed!

What a privilege we have to take the gospel to those in our state who so desperately need to hear it. Last year, 679 Missouri Baptist churches supported MMO and gave an all-time record amount. We’re asking the Lord for even more MBC churches to catch the vision of what a state missions offering can contribute to His work in our communities.

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 to 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 $750,000, and our Week of Prayer is September 10-17. 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.
