Sending Celebration

Join us as we send out our newest IMB missionaries

We Send Missionaries Around the World

IMB hosts Sending Celebrations throughout the year to worship together, pray and send out Southern Baptists’ newest missionaries. Each Sending Celebration features the stories of how God has called these missionaries to be steadfastly present among those who have never heard the gospel.

How to Pray

Please pray…

  • For wisdom and grace as these missionaries learn new languages to share the gospel.
  • That the children of the missionaries would settle into their new culture well.
  • For favor as these missionaries apply for visas to live in their new locations.

Pray for daily requests from your missionaries.
