Missionaries' No. 1 need is for prayer support!
Focused, continuous prayers not only for themselves but for the people to whom they bring the love of Christ.
Missions leaders help churches know how to pray strategically, why to give sacrificially and how to come alongside missionaries to reach the lost.
Your giving enables missionaries to be sent to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.

WHY WE GO
Every church promotes their international offering differently.
- What if we don't promote the offering during the week suggested? That's okay!
- What if we call our offering "global missions offering"? Great!
- What if we pick up a large missions offering only once a year? Way to Go!
Don't Stress. You are able to use week of prayer materials any time through out the year. IMB designs their material with YOU in mind. They also have a line of material branded with "Global Missions Offering" for churches who do things a little different.
WHERE DO WE SEND OUR OFFERING?
