RMMO Offering

Your simple yet profound act of giving, allows the ABC to share in an act of Grace that reminds the ministers, missionaries and widowed spouses who served so faithfully that they are remembered with love and gratitude.

America For Christ

The America for Christ Offering 2017 theme reminds us that as Baptists, we exemplify a vital legacy of missions and ministry. Through your generous donations is a commitment to cultivating Christian leaders who are spiritually competent, in touch with their churches and communities, and passionate about ministry and helping people. The big question is always, What do leaders need to continue growing and developing? Your AFC Offering reminds us that service is a way of life for Christ’s church. Your generous giving this year to the AFC Offering is helping to reach goals that support missions across the United States and Puerto Rico.
