The Mission North America offering is the Sunday before Thanksgiving every year and is the official week designated to our department to encourage local churches to promote and take up an offering to benefit our general fund. NAM’s general fund provides operational resources for each of the six main divisions of our office- church planting, church revitalization, cross-cultural ministry, chaplaincy, Church Extension Loan Fund and Master’s Men.
Money from the general fund provides resources to recruit, assess, train and coach our church planters, church revitalization pastors, cross cultural ministers and chaplains. Every new church planter and revitalization pastor goes through intensive training that is paid for by the general fund. Ongoing training is provided through conferences, training events and online resources. We use these funds to promote our church planters, print materials such as directories (so you can stay informed and in touch), maps, brochures and many other things.
NAM sponsors a number of training events and seminars that are all free of charge to the pastors and churches of our denomination. Mostly, we travel to you to make it as convenient as possible for any church to participate in our events. Our staff is available to come to churches, associations and state meetings (without charge) to provide training, encouragement, preaching and more.NAM receives a portion of the Together Way plan but those funds only provide about 14% of our total general fund need. I hope it is evident why the offering is so important and why we need your help!
