Our Current 3Q Financial Position
Please note that our Region's ability to do its mission and ministry largely depends upon our churches contributing to United Mission Basic and to the Region Offering. Both of our Camps also depend largely upon your monthly contributions that are reflected in the Specifics line item.
Thank you so much for your GENEROUS SUPPORT!! 

A word from our
Mission and Stewardship Ministry Team

Generosity Project

An opportunity is here for pastors who are ready for a fresh focus to start 2022.  
A Pilot Program, “Generosity Project” will be launched  in Mid-America  January 2022.
This is a perfect program for pastors to learn how to lead their churches toward what it means to be generous the Jesus way.  

*One year commitment

*Meet monthly with 5-8 participants via Zoom

*Group decides the time and day

*One book per quarter will be read and discussed

*Facilitator will assist with the discussion

*You will design at least one generosity experiment for your ministry context 

*Explore ways to apply your learnings beyond this project after reading the last book

*There is no cost for the program or the books, thanks to a Palmer Grant and support from American Baptist Home Mission Societies

We need 5 to 8 participants to form a cohort.  By Dec. 10, 2021 please let Rev. Gary Martin know if you would like to participate. or 515-329-6434
