The North American Mission Board announced Monday evening (Oct. 2) that in 2023 Southern Baptists gave an all-time record $70.2 million to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American missions.
Kevin Ezell, NAMB president, shared the news during the annual fall meeting of NAMB’s Board of Trustees in Denver. For six of the last seven years, Southern Baptists have set records in their giving to the Annie Offering.
The offering has helped Southern Baptists plant more than 10,000 churches since 2010, supporting more than 2,900 missionaries throughout North America, NAMB reported. NAMB has provided evangelism resources and extended compassion ministry efforts throughout the continent as every contribution to the AAEO goes directly to support missionaries and ministry efforts on the field.
The offering provides more than half of NAMB’s overall budget each year, and the total is counted based on giving during each fiscal year, from October through September.
Since 2010, Southern Baptists have increased their giving to the Annie Offering by 29%.
