2010 Report on WMO Giving Now Available

September 7, 2011 News

Last year you gave more than $3 million to support global mission through American Baptist International Ministries (IM). 


We are deeply thankful for your contributions, and so are people around the world who are experiencing the mercy of Christ thanks to your generosity.


Very briefly, of the $3 million received from U.S. and Puerto Rico churches and individuals, $2.7 million (or about 90%) is being used to support 100 IM missionaries. 


The remaining $470,000 (about 10%) goes to provide support for partners in vital Christian ministries around the world. 


Do you want to know more? We’ve prepared several resources that you can share with your churches that provide additional detail, and tell the stories of three of global partners and their awesome ministries that depend in large part upon WMO gifts.


Free resources now available:


1.     Financial overview – PowerPoint presentation with audio (recorded by Manny Hernandez, IM board of directors’ vice president from his home in Indiana).  The presentation is low-tech, but the content is useful.  Churches will find this material helpful in educational settings, business and mission committee meetings.  The video is entitled:  How your 2010 Gifts Are Changing God’s World (8:40 min). Available on our website at, or on the DVD mailed to churches in the WMO promotional packet.

2.     Power Point slides are available (without the audio) on our website at Scroll to the end of the list of resources.

3.     Bulletin insert/flyer that summarizes the information is available on the back page of the Leader’s Guide that was mailed to your church in the WMO promotional packet.  It is also available on our website at

You may request a WMO promotional packet be mailed to you by calling Tammy at 1-800-4JUDSON.


Thank you for your support of the World Mission Offering.
