The Heritage and Harvest Offering
Baptist World Mission (BWM) is commemorating 50 years of serving some of God’s choicest servants—missionaries!
To further enable our missionaries and to position BWM for future ministry, BWM is receiving a one-time Heritage and Harvest Offering. We are asking churches, supporters, and friends to partner with us in this jubilee year to accomplish something unprecedented in BWM’s 50-year history. Our goal is 100% participation. No gift is too small.
This is a golden opportunity, not only because of our 50-year anniversary, but also because of current trends in missions. Now is the time for God’s people to stand together in reaffirming BWM’s historic commitment to strive for the faith of the Gospel within the biblical fellowship of a separatist stand.
Now is also the time to help BWM strive for the faith of the Gospel. The Heritage and Harvest Offering will help position BWM to better serve our missionaries and focus on the challenges of 21st century missions. Like missionaries, BWM cannot fulfill its vital functions apart from the financial commitment of God’s people.
The results of the Heritage and Harvest Offering will be announced during our jubilee celebration Annual Meeting scheduled for October 17-19, 2011, at Marquette Manor Baptist Church in Downers Grove, Illinois. You are invited to join us for this special occasion! Thanks for your partnership for the sake of the Gospel and planting churches worldwide!
