SBC Offerings

Support missions

“As Southern Baptists learn how God is at work around the world, they GIVE of their resources and offer more informed prayers for those who have committed their lives to following the Great Commission into all the world so the gospel will be proclaimed among all people.” —Wanda Lee, National WMU executive director/treasurer, emerita

WMU believes in the importance of stewardship and giving to missions. WMU actively promotes giving to the two missions offerings which supply approximately half of the annual budgets for the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board. 

WMU urged to 'not grow weary in doing good'

ST. LOUIS (BP) -- International Mission Board church planter Sabastian Vazquez couldn't escape the inevitable emotions as he stood before a group of women whose legacy had led to four generations of pastors in his family.

Speaking during day two of the 2016 Woman's Missionary Union (WMU) Missions Celebration and Annual Meeting, Sabastian unsuccessfully fought off tears as he told the story of a new Southern Baptist missionary who a century ago handed a Spanish-language evangelistic tract to an illiterate baker named Angel Vazquez, his great-grandfather. Angel knew the missionary had given him something very special because of the way in which he gave it to him. He became a Christian and asked the missionary to teach him how to be a pastor, too. His son, grandson and great-grandson, Sabastian, would follow in his footsteps.
