Immanuel a Church on Mission

Seasonal Mission

“…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

The IBC Missions Team is committed to stewarding the generous gifts from the church to support the work of spreading the gospel and to loving our neighbors as we love ourselves in order to reach them with the gospel in the Concho Valley, Texas, North America, and around the world.  We have a place for you to serve on our team.

Pastor Ryan Buck

Being Spiritually dead or being in a spiritually dead church is a horrible reality.  The very purpose of our existence is to worship the living God of creation. However, I have been in churches that were spiritually stale in their worship and you could nearly smell the spiritual death coming out of them.  One such experience happened in a church because they completely turned inward and because of financial hardship, completely gave up giving to missions.  When that church made that intentional and misguided decision death permeated that congregation and they completely lost their evangelistic power in the community.

For that congregation, they lost a decade of missional purpose and impact in their community.  It was not until the church began to look outward into the community again and then began to sacrificially give to missions, did life return to that church.

Immanuel has a long spiritually legacy of both reaching the community and engaging in missions.  We currently are a Sending church as we have 2 families from Immanuel serving with the International Missions Board overseas.  We also give 15% of all the tithe money that comes into the church to missions’ efforts.  We increased that percentage this past year.  Because of the commitment to missional engagement and the evangelistic intentionality of the church to boldly proclaim the Word of God, Immanuel enjoys the Lord’s blessing in our ministries.

Last year we gave over $170,000 to missions.  $140,000 of that came straight from our budget.  $30,000 came from our generous congregation giving above and beyond their tithe to our Seasonal Mission offerings.  As you engage in the body of Christ here at IBC, please include missional giving as a part of your worship.

Mary Hill David

Mary Hill Davis was a leading advocate for Texas missions in the early 20th century.  She encouraged Baptists to support missions in Texas both spiritually and financial.  100% of the resources gathered from the Mary Hill Davis Offering are utilized to support struggling Baptist associations, struggling churches, campus college ministries and new church plants across Texas.  Grants are generously given by our state convention, the BGCT, from this special fund.

WINTER MISSION OFFEREING

Lottie Moon

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist Missionary to China from 1873 to 1912.  She saw firsthand the world’s greatest problem – LOSTNESS.  Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for a great missionary presence.  She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries.  This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.

December - February
