Dixie Jackson Arkansas Missions Offering

It’s been over two thousand years and we can still feel the warmth of the Gospel-sharing flame sparked by believers in the early church. Their passion and charisma for the life of Jesus and His wonder-working power has taken the Good News across lands and seas they didn’t even know existed.

It’s with this kind of fiery passion that we as Arkansas Baptists long to play our part. 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.

We pray that just like in the days of the early church, when “the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power,” that the embers of our hearts would shine brightly for our Savior. We ask that He ignite within us a passion to pray, give and serve so that His glory and grace be fully on display.

Disaster Relief

When a natural disaster hits, Disaster Relief is almost always the first to arrive and the last to leave. As soon as conditions are clear enough for a team to get in, Disaster Relief is there, ready to provide food and clean-up crews. This is where Randy Garrett most strongly sees the blessing of Arkansas Baptists and their willingness to pray and give.

College Ministries

Every year, Dixie Jackson helps fuel college ministries all over the state, equipping them to connect with students like Bekah Gulledge who have a passion for ministry. Even as Christian students are nourished, fed, and encouraged to grow personally with Christ, they are also provided with avenues for reaching non-Christians with the gospel. They are shown how to build relationships and meet needs.

Community Missions

Because Arkansas Baptists have been faithful to give to the Dixie Jackson State Missions Offering, ministries like One Day Acts 1:8 Missions Experience have been able to develop, grow, and thrive. But it doesn’t stop with giving, because money alone doesn’t put God’s people on the streets serving and knocking on doors. Obedience and action must follow, with believers stepping out to participate in missions.

Church Planting

Like many single-industry towns across the nation, Trumann, Arkansas, was once a prosperous destination. But when industry demands shifted and the local plant shut down, poverty and unemployment began to soar. As hope for recovery diminished and generational poverty set in, Trumann went from being a place of opportunity to a place of addiction, poverty, and crime. But God had different plans.
