2012 Week of Prayer for North American Missions and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

February 19, 2012

Theme: Whatever It Takes

Scripture: Mark 2:1-5 (HCSB)

“When He entered Capernaum again after some days, it was reported that He was at home. So many people gathered together that there was no more room, not even in the doorway, and He was speaking the message to them. Then they came to Him bringing a paralytic, carried by four men. Since they were not able to bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above where He was. And when they had broken through, they lowered the stretcher on which the paralytic was lying. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

National Goal: $70 million

Dates: March 4-11, 2012

The annual Week of Prayer for North American Missions is March 4-11, 2012. This year, five missionaries representing thousands of missionaries serving throughout the United States, Canada, and their territories are spotlighted. The other three days focus on ways Southern Baptists are reaching the lost in North America.

Day 1: Send North America
Church planting is at the core of the North American Mission Board’s national strategy, Send North America. This strategy is designed to mobilize churches to plant churches, mobilize church planters, and equip church planters and “sending churches” for evangelistic church planting.

Day 2: Shaun and Deshni Pillay, Connecticut
Shaun is church planter and pastor of Cornerstone International Church in Norwich. The church ministers to a large international population and a large homeless community meeting physical needs and directing people to Christ.

Day 3: Jason and Kimberley McGibbon, Canada
Jason is a church planter seeking to begin a new church in Hamilton, a downtown, urban/arts community near Toronto. This new church will be a third-generation church start of The Sanctuary Church and The Sanctuary Church Milton.

Day 4: Josh and Tiffany Lenon, Ohio
Josh is church planter and pastor of Red Door Church in Cincinnati members are encouraged to do whatever it takes to bring people to Christ.

Day 5: Derek and Sharla Osburn, New Mexico
Derek is church planter and pastor of The Vine Community Church in Clovis, a rural community with a large population of Air Force personnel.

Day 6: Daniel and Karina Egipciaco ,Florida
Daniel is a national church planting missionary working with and training church planters in South Florida, seeking opportunities to start new groups and churches.

Day 7: Equipping The Next Generation
Each year, more than 1,000 summer, semester and US/C2 missionaries work alongside missionaries and church planters. These short-term experiences serve as a training lab for future career missionaries, church planters, and on-mission Christians as they learn by doing.

Day 8: “Love Loud”
Ministry evangelism missionaries love loud through service in a variety of ministry roles such as community, literacy, resort, seafarer, sports evangelism and pregnancy care. Through meeting needs and taking the gospel to people where they are, missionaries are seeing transformation in their communities.
