CBF Offering for Global Missions

One of the best reasons for being part of church is the chance to do something far bigger than ourselves. Faith communities allow us the opportunity to have an impact on our world in ways none of us could do alone. By giving to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's Global Missions Offering, I get to be a part of cultivating beloved community, bearing witness to Jesus Christ, and seeing transformational development among people and in places otherwise forgotten and forsaken. Those are the stated goals of the missions effort of CBF. My gift will bear wintess to Jesus Christ in 30 countries around the world where field personnel are working and serving. Their salaries, benefits, housing, and children's educational needs will be provided so that they may reach people on the margins of society in places I will never go.

"Bearing Witness to Jesus Christ" is the theme of this year's offering, and 100% of gifts will go directly to CBF field peronnel, ensuring their long-term presence around the world. To learn more about the missioanries, go to cbf.net, where you will be able to read about each of them, view videos, read related articles, and see pictures of their extraordinary work. You will find a list of their birthdays, along with those of chaplains and pastoral counselors.

Will you join me in a commitment to becoming more engaged with our missionaries and their work, praying for them and for those whom they serve, and giving to the Global Missions offering? We have a unique opportunity to do something big together!
