Annually, the North American Baptist Conference provides individuals and churches a way to support our international missions endeavors through our Spring (Easter) Missions Offering. This year, we are praying that every NAB church and all those connected to those churches will think deeply about God’s compassionate care, and then give generously to support our Ministry Outreach department’s efforts to show God’s compassion around the world.
At the North American Baptist Conference, our desire is to be like Jesus and see the distressed and downcast crowds, to experience authentic compassion, and then to go with God into the harvest fields. Living at the crossroads of compassion—where hurting people gather—allows us to care for real physical needs while at the same time pointing people to spiritual redemption through Jesus Christ. For those who suffer, they often believe the lie that they are unworthy of love or help. Introducing others to the love of Jesus through the gospel story is the most transformative message they will ever experience.
The NAB 2014 Spring Missions Offering focuses attention on the myriad of ways each day that NAB missionaries demonstrate compassion and communicate the gospel message to suffering people around the world. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to recruit, train, support, and encourage the work of spreading God’s love and truth around the world.
