The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions focuses on Southern Baptist mission efforts in the United States and Canada. The 2021 theme is “The Mission Moves Forward” based on 1 Corinthians 15:58.
“It’s Up to You” -President, Kevin Ezell
The offering traditionally is featured near Easter each year (April 4, 2021) and supports ministries of North American missionaries who serve through church planting, Baptist centers, language ministries and evangelism. All gifts – 100 percent – given to AAEO support Southern Baptist missionaries serving across the US and in Canada.
A featured missionary couple for 2021 are Jacob & Francine Zailian from Sanger, CA. Zailian serves as a a church planter of a Set Free congregation which ministers primarily to drug addicts, gang members and the homeless. Watch their story!
An integral part of the offering is the Week of Prayer and Mission Study. March 7-14, 2021 has been designated for the study. However, church leaders may choose to conduct the study anytime during the Easter season or at another convenient time when North American missions is emphasized.
Named in honor of Annie Armstrong who served as a missionary in Baltimore in the 19th century and was the first national executive leader of Woman’s Missionary Union, which promotes the offering. Many items are produced to assist churches in emphasizing this important opportunity to support missions in the US and Canada and can be ordered without cost.
