The goal? Raise $160 million dollars by the end of the year
The purpose? To send more light into the darkness, to touch more lives with the Gospel, and to raise up more nations in His name.
How does it happen? One way is giving and lots of it. Another way is prayer - 2018 Week of Prayer for International Missions – during December, and everyone can be part of both.
Generous giving to the 2018 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® makes a massive difference in the world. Men, women, children, and entire communities are transformed as a result of this offering. Your gifts enable thousands of missionaries to live among, serve, and share the gospel with people who have never heard it until now.
Where does all that money go? Through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, you and your church are:
Supporting over 3,600 missionaries
Enabling disciples to be made and churches to be multiplied around the world
Continuing the SBC’s 173-year commitment to missions, worldwide
