BE His heart, His hands, His voice
Pastor, here are tools to help you promote your global missions offering as never before! Whether you call it Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® or something else, the gifts you send to IMB go 100 percent toward supporting your international missionaries.
This year’s theme is BE His heart, His hands, His voice – no matter the cost. Across the globe, believers are spreading the Gospel in the face of adversity and persecution. How can and should we respond? The Great Commission is for every believer.
Jesus calls us to deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow Him. What does that look like for your church?
