  • Generosity matters.

    Your faithful giving provides missionary presence and leads to salvation. The IMB can help you use almost any resource God has given you for a mission impact. Consider these ways to give:

Your Missionaries Are Grateful

When we say “thank you,” it’s not a simple statement. We recognize the deep commitment that so many of you have made to support more than 3,500 missionaries and their families and to solve the world’s greatest problem.

  • Jesse

    Jesse, West Africa (Journeyman)

    “In my city, I teach English at a community center. We use Scripture to teach students English and share the gospel. One of my favorite parts of my job is discipling young women. Thank you for providing this opportunity.”

  • Carpenter Family

    Carpenter Family, Italy

    “We live in a gorgeous place in Northern Italy but many of the people here worship the creation instead of the Creator. Thank you so much for your prayers and support which allow us to be here sharing about our Creator.”

  • Moses

    Moses, Senegal

    “We are teaching a new church plant how to sing songs to worship God. In the past, they sang songs to worship an idol, but now they worship Jesus. Thank you for your support. Without you, we can’t do this in Senegal.”

  • Bauman Family

    Bauman Family, Europe

    “I want to say a huge thank you. Thank you for your generous giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and Cooperative Program. One of the things I get to do is train our [IMB and national partner] teams in using digital tools to get the gospel to people’s phones.”

  • Jack and Prinna

    Jack and Prinna, Japan

    “Through your partnership in the gospel, the Lord has worked through us to raise up Japanese disciples who are now opening up their home and leading Bible study. Thank you for your prayers and financial support.”

  • Brian

    Brian, Colombia

    “It takes almost all day to get to this indigenous village, and it’s one of the closest communities on the mountain. Because of your giving we can help Christians to be discipled and take the gospel further up the mountain to people who have never heard.”
