On Tuesday, March 16, J.D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, joined North American Mission Board (NAMB) president Kevin Ezell for a Facebook live event to discuss the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® (AAEO) for North American Missions.
Ezell expressed the need for the 2021 AAEO to make a “comeback” after the COVID-19 pandemic drove the 2020 offering down 20 percent. Greear and Ezell both highlighted the need for gospel proclamation in North America, both outside the American South and even in the South.
“One hundred percent of the Annie offering goes on the field to missionaries,” Ezell told Greear. “It helps provide for missionaries. We have missionary care for when they go through different challenges in life. We’re there to help take care of them and help walk them through the challenges.”
The funds support and provide supplies for church planting missionaries and compassion missionaries as they seek to share the gospel in their communities.
