About The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® for North American Missions
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® for North American missions has been an annual offering benefitting missionaries and their work of sharing the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ since 1895. Named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a passionate Southern Baptist advocate of missions who lived 1850-1938, the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is the primary funding channel for the North American Mission Board, comprising 49 percent of its total annual support.
Every dollar goes to train, resource and equip missionaries working throughout the United States, Canada and their territories. The offering represents the trust that Southern Baptists place in our missionary force and NAMB’s stewardship of these funds. Each year the offering totals approximately $60 million with more than $1 billion having been raised since the offering’s inception. Learn more about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering here.
