THE MISSION MOVES FORWARD

Just like we’ve had to adapt our ministry during the pandemic, missionaries across the U.S. and Canada are doing whatever it takes to reach lost people in North America with the gospel. Through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, our church is joining them in this work and keeping the mission moving forward!

Ever wonder how your gifts help?

  • When God calls missionaries to share the gospel in a different culture, they must prepare for this challenging new vocation. IMB's rigorous training and preparation process helps new missionaries begin their journey well.


    $700 provides three month intensive training

    $2,000 provides vaccinations to prepare for the field

    $2,300 trains and launches a new missionary

  • Language proficiency is key to cultural understanding. As learning progresses, missionaries' ability to become part of the community deepens, as does their ability to communicate Scripture and apply it to people's lives.


    $50 provides language learning supplies

    $150 covers one month of in-country language study

    $600 covers a two week intensive "language sprint"

  • Depending on location, some missionary families homeschool while others use local or boarding schools. Funds ensure kids receive a good education while allowing missionaries to remain on the field.


    $1,000 covers a homeschool conference for a family

    $2,500 covers one year of homeschool curriculum and supplies

    $7,500 covers one year of international school

  • The challenging security situation across the world threatens the basic presence of missionaries. Security training equips missionaries and their families to live as safely as possible in some of the most dangerous areas of the world.


    $600 pays for satellite phones for emergency situations

    $5,800 covers security training for one missionary

  • There are 180 million people without access to any Scripture in their heart language, and another 1.5 billion only have portions of Scripture available in their language.


    $10 covers a Bible in local language

    $20 covers New Testaments in local languages

    $60 covers Bible study materials for a new believers class

  • Recordings and gospel films can bridge communication gaps and are easily transportable, especially in places where it's dangerous to publicly share the gospel or carry a printed Bible.


    $6 provides a USB with gospel in sign language

    $50 provides five evangelistic packets with gospel tract and DVD

    $3,000 covers the production of a gospel film in a new language

  • Reaching non-literate societies or the Deaf requires creativity to seek out methods that accurately present the life-changing gospel of Jesus.


    $2 provides a tube of Henna to illustrate five gospel stories

    $10 provides a USB for unreached Deaf peoples

    $350 provides a translation of one Bible story into sign language

  • Community outreach through the internet and social media joins the gospel conversation with the marketplace of ideas.

    $4,500 provides story books for 200 trainings

  • Helping bivocational pastors become self-sustaining ensures they can continue in ministry to their church while still providing for their families. This, in turn, strengthens house church networks.


    $317 provides a one-time micro-finance grant for a bivocational church planter

  • Agricultural projects provide entry to regions that are otherwise difficult to access with the gospel. At the same time, missionaries bring much-needed expertise to rural areas, and, often, marginalized people.


    $26 provides gardening tools and seed

    $230 provides two sheep for a family to start animal husbandry work

    $1,500 provides a large greenhouse for research, training, growing new seed varieties

  • Life changing opportunities can come in the form of learning new skills to those trapped in poverty. Learning a viable trade often means an escape from a life of exploitation.

WHO's YOUR ONE?

As we continue through 2021, we can still prioritize ministering to our neighbors, friends, coworkers, and family members. The awful reality of sickness and death often puts eternal matters in perspective. Make it a point to talk to the people you already know and love who need Christ as their Savior. Invite them to one of our in-person, socially-distant services, or watch an online service with them.
