2017 STATE MISSION OFFERING
The Week of Prayer for State Missions emphasis will be observed September 10-17.
Why a state mission offering? Because 75 percent of Florida’s 20 million population—15 million—do not have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. With more than a third of the population in Florida, 95 percent of South Florida’s population is unchurched.
Theme: #SENDSOUTHFLORIDA “Come Over . . .And Help Us”
Scripture: Acts 16:9, “That night Paul had a vision. In his dream he saw a man over in Macedonia, Greece, pleading with him, ‘Come over here and help us.’”
The 2017 State Mission Offering will be totally dedicated to funding new initiatives in South Florida through a partnership between the Florida Baptist Convention and North American Mission Board. This re-launched partnership calls for a greater Kingdom vision with more engagement, more commitment and more involvement to reach three South Florida counties—Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach—where more than one-third of the state’s population resides.
