The Cooperative Program is Southern Baptists’ unified plan of giving through which cooperating Southern Baptist churches give a percentage of their undesignated receipts in support of their respective state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention missions and ministries.
State Missions Offering
Each year in September, we join together in the State Missions Offering to support ministries and churches in our convention. In the past, this offering has provided support for rural church planting, Hmong language support, disaster relief, African American ministries, pastoral emergencies, and other needs.
Promotional material will be mailed out the beginning of August.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Since 1845, the IMB has partnered with churches to send missionaries to live and work among those around the world with little to no access to the gospel. 100% of your generous gifts provide missionaries the services they need to live among the unreached peoples they serve.
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) is the primary way we support mission efforts in North America. One hundred percent of gifts given to AAEO are used to support Southern Baptist missionaries serving across the United States and Canada.
Global Hunger Relief
GHR(Global Hunger Relief) is an initiative of Southern Baptists that was formerly known as the World Hunger Fund. GHR-funded projects combat hunger in North America and around the world in a wide variety of ways, from from disaster relief to addressing chronic hunger, from eliminating urban food deserts to helping women rescued from sex trafficking — and much more.
Hands of Hope
Hands of Hope is an exciting mission opportunity with servanthood evangelism projects in a local community setting with the purpose of strengthening and planting churches. Each year, we go to a different church plant to support their needs.
As an encouragement to new churches and missions affiliated with the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Convention (MWBC), a memorial fund has been established in memory of Frank B. Burress and Warren Littleford.
The corpus (principal) of this Fund is provided by gifts from individuals, groups and churches in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, and other locations in memory of Frank B. Burress and Warren Littleford.
Grants from the Fund may be available to congregations meeting all guidelines and requesting funds for (1) purchase of first land and construction of a first building unit, (2) purchase of an existing first building unit, or (3) necessary capital improvements. (The grants are not applicable to furnishings or operating expenses.) A church that did not receive funds for its first property or building may be eligible to receive funds for an addition or necessary improvement to its existing building or for obtaining a subsequent property or building. Only one grant per church is permitted.
Please contact our office for a copy of the Burress-Littleford Memorial Fund application.
We can provide guidance for you church as you prepare to purchase or build a facility. Please contact our office for more information.
Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Foundation
A bequest to the Minnesota-Wisconsin Baptist Foundation is a way of perpetuating your support of missions and your church’s ministries for the future.
