Annual Statistical Report

Reporting on 2020 Data


Annual Statistical Report

The Annual Statistical Report (ASR) represents work done by IMB personnel and their missions partners in 2020, for use from May 2021 to April 2022.

The ASR contains data from all nine IMB affinities and reports on the six components of the missionary task: entry, evangelism, discipleship, healthy church formation, leadership development and exit to partnership. Our global research team has taken care to provide accurate numbers that represent IMB’s commitment, as the Apostle Paul advised, to not report upon the work done outside of the sphere apportioned to us by the Lord (2 Cor 10:12-18).

May you be blessed by this report of God’s work among the people groups of the world through Southern Baptists.
