State Missions Offering
Oklahoma Baptists have a long history of stepping into areas of brokenness and meeting needs, all to advance the Gospel. In fact, that is the very heart of this offering. The Missions Offering is a very tangible expression of the common bond we have in Christ and the common mission we have to advance the Gospel in our state.
This year’s goal for Oklahoma Baptists is $1.2 Million.
Our Church’s 2021 Goal is $4,000.
A letter from the Senior Associate Executive Director of Oklahoma Baptists:
Dear Oklahoma Baptists,
We will always be able to accomplish more together than we can alone. The Lord reminded me of this truth over the last year, as I witnessed Oklahoma Baptists step up to give generously to advance the Gospel together, even amid challenging times.
Every year we also get to see this truth, as Oklahoma Baptists give together toward the Edna McMillan State Missions Offering. In fact, one of the great things about being an Oklahoma Baptist is that we agree, once a year, to pool our resources toward this important offering.
Through the State Missions Offering, we are embracing the brokenness as opportunity for the Gospel in our state and beyond. We are reaching the hurting in communities throughout the state, we are strengthening the health of our churches, and we are enhancing the spiritual growth of the next generation of believers.
In the prayer guide, you will see specific examples of how your State Missions Offering giving is making an impact. From strengthening our churches to Baptist Collegiate Ministries and more, your mission giving advances the Gospel to every part of this state.
Jesus prayed that His followers would be united, that “they may be one” (John 17:11). When we give together, that is a tangible demonstration of unity. Please pray about your gift toward this missions offering, as we once again see God enable us to do more together than we could ever do alone.
