When it comes to sharing the Gospel both at home and abroad, Arkansas Baptist churches get it. The Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering and Week of Prayer each September is intended to highlight and encourage Gospel-work that Arkansas Baptists are faithfully supporting in our state and beyond.
Arkansas Baptists are the prayer warriors and partners supporting new church works. They are the missionaries behind the Acts 1:8 One Day Mission Trip and other community missions. They are the mentors in Christian Men & Women’s Job Corps and Explore Your Call summer internships. They are Disaster Relief volunteers serving to bring Help, Healing, and Hope. They are missional couples inviting international students into their homes, and much more.
Dixie Jackson, the missionary for whom the annual Arkansas Missions Offering is named, devoted her life to fulfilling God’s mission and involving others in that mission all year long. And now, 100 years later, we have the same opportunity to passionately pray, give, and serve. It's a heart beating for missions. It's us. It's you. It's me. I am Dixie Jackson.
This is why we will continue to challenge Arkansas Baptists to increase their giving and their involvement. Let’s partner together to impact our communities, our state, the nation, and the world with the Good News of Jesus.
