Missions Education and Ministries

Linda ClarkWelcome to the missions education information page! The articles in this section are written to provide you with the latest resources and information to help you and your church fulfill our missions mandate.

Every month’s postings will include ideas you can use in your small group setting, emphases for use in worship services, projects your church can do to share Christ in your neighborhood and community, and information about Southern Baptist mission efforts around the world.

l serve as SEIBA’s missions education consultant and would be glad to work with you, your pastor, and church missions development team to help you develop a strategic approach to engaging in missions efforts in our region, in Indiana, in North  America, and overseas. Please don’t hesitate to contact me by texting me (502.595.8473) or via email: lclark1213@hotmail.com  I am available to speak to women’s groups and retreats and to make mission presentations.

The emphasis for 2018 is “Unshakeable Pursuit.” God is unshakeable in His pursuit of us, and it is our challenge to also be unshakeable in our pursuit to share Christ’s love with others. I look forward to hearing from you!

In His Service,

Linda Clark

December is the month to emphasize how Southern Baptists support mission efforts around the world.  Named for a missionary to China, Lottie Moon, gifts to the mission offering now total more than $2 billion! Moon’s name has become synonymous with love and sacrifice. Week of Prayer materials are printed every year to encourage churches to support more than 5000 career missionaries in over 100 nations.

Prayer resources are available through the Indiana state Woman’s Missionary Union office. Call or email to order free posters, Week of Prayer guides, and offering envelopes. Go online to imbconnecting.org to download videos for use in worship and to promote giving to your church’s offering goal. The resources are excellent and certain to motivate giving!

New Ideas for Christmas Gifts

Many people don’t know about the fair-trade ministry called WorldCrafts sponsored by Woman’s Missionary Union. WorldCrafts is making an eternal impact on the lives of artisans around the world as it embraces its mission to develop sustainable, fair-trade businesses among impoverished people around the world. One way to support this ministry is to purchase your Christmas gifts through WorldCrafts! Items include gifts for women, children, and men as well as home décor handmade crafts. Christmas products are very popular for nativity collectors, ornaments, and stockings. The WorldCrafts Support Freedom campaign actively empowers customers, buyers, and artisans by supporting those groups working to free women involved in or at risk of human trafficking. Go to www.worldcrafts.org to view the catalog and place your order.
