This is the SBC’s oldest and best mission offering. Whatever is askew in our convention doesn’t diminish the need for a global strategy for missions where resident workers who are immersed in the culture and speak the language share the Gospel.
I think, overall, Southern Baptists understand this and give faithfully and often sacrificially. There have been years when the LMCO jumped $20 million from the previous year. Not sure where we will be when the total is reported late this year. I think the $200 million barrier will be broken in a few years.
How is your church doing?
