Your 2016 Missions Giving Report

In 2016, your church—along with other Arkansas Baptist churches—gave more to support missions than ever before! 

This is who we are as a convention: a family of believers and a network of churches working together to share the Gospel with our communities, state, and world. Your financial gifts, partnership, and prayers fuel our mission work, and we celebrate what the Lord has done in 2016 because of you! 

Arkansas Baptists gave $1.6 million to the Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering in 2016. As we celebrated the offering’s 90th anniversary, we were grateful that it was also the biggest giving year ever. The Dixie Jackson offering funds Gospel missions and ministries such as:

  • Acts 1:8 One Day Mission Trip
  • Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief
  • Baptist Collegiate Ministries
  • Christian Men’s & Women’s Job Corps
  • Church planting
  • Connect Weekends
  • E4Call student summer internships
  • Hunger ministry sites
  • Literacy missions
  • Medical & dental missions
  • Multi-housing locations
  • Pregnancy resource centers
  • Prison ministries

Arkansas Baptist churches also gave $21 million to cooperative missions through the Cooperative Program. This year’s giving was the highest ever in our state’s history. The Cooperative Program funds Gospel missions and ministries such as:

  • Arkansas Baptist agencies: Arkansas Baptist Children’s Home, Arkansas Baptist Foundation, Arkansas Baptist News Magazine, Camp Siloam
  • Arkansas Baptist Executive Board
  • Arkansas Baptist institutions: Ouachita Baptist University, Williams Baptist College
  • Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief
  • Church planting
  • International Mission Board (IMB) missions efforts
  • North American Mission Board (NAMB) missions efforts
  • Theological education through Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) seminaries
