Every year, Southern Baptist churches collect an offering to send and support missionaries to be steadfastly present among those who have never heard the gospel.

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873 to 1912. She saw firsthand the world's greatest problem — LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for a greater missionary presence.
She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries. This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®.
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is a registered trademark of Woman's Missionary Union.
We desire to send 500 additional missionaries to the nations by 2025 so that millions of people can hear the gospel. To do this, we need every Southern Baptist to help solve the world's greatest problem through increased prayer and financial support.
Here's a quick guide to help lead your church to join in giving toward the Lottie Moon offering.
