Where JESUS will Always be our first love!
Operation Christmas Child
Samaritans Purse Ministries (Franklin Graham)
Maguire State Mission Offering
The offering is named for Clyde and John Maguire, whose visionary leadership guided the Florida Baptist Convention through one of its greatest periods of growth and Great Commission outreach. He served as the sixth executive secretary-treasurer from 1945-67.
Understanding that the growing missionary needs in Florida cannot be met by Cooperative Program gifts alone, the offering compliments Florida Baptists’ commitment to the Great Commission and their mission field.
The offering has a missionary purpose-helping new congregations through no-interest church site loans, supporting partnership pastors and spreading the gospel through evangelistic ministries.
Without Florida Baptists’ gifts to the state mission offering, these 27 ministries-which serve to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to every person in the state-could not be done.
