Hope for the World | New Opportunities in 2016
July 20, 2016
“And His name will be the hope of all the world.”
—Matthew 12:21 (NLT)
For over ten years, the Hope for the World Missions Offering has generated millions of dollars to reach the lost and hurting around the world, the U.S., and Middle Tennessee.
Brentwood Baptist Church's Missions Minister, Scott Harris, explains:
The Hope for the World Missions Offering is our unified giving plan to support our mission partners throughout the year. The offering runs January 1 through December 31. We provide quarterly support based on the generosity of our members. With these funds goes prayer support, volunteers, engagements with mission journey teams, and more. These partners are not just names and faces on a piece of paper. We really know them, and we partner with them for many years. It’s exciting over the years to see these ministries and these initiatives grow, to see churches started, to see lives changed, to see lives saved, to see the gospel grow and flourish in places in our local community and to the very ends of the earth.
In 2016, the Hope for the World Missions Offering is starting something new. Each regional campus of Brentwood Baptist Church now has their own Hope for the World Missions Offering goal. The Church at Avenue South, The Church at Woodbine, The Church at Station Hill, and The Church at West Franklin will each work toward meeting their campus goal as a part of the larger Hope for the World Missions Offering. In addition, a portion of the money given toward these campus goals will go directly to ministry partners chosen by each campus. These Focus Partners were chosen because the ministry they provide is aligned with the passion and interests of each unique campus.
The new West Franklin Hope for the World Goal is $50,000. A portion of this goal will go directly to these partners:
TN Baptist Children’s Homes
This is a ministry Tennessee Southern Baptist’s that is near and dear to many hearts at West Franklin. Pastor Matt’s grandfather was the President of the Alabama Children’s Home for many years. Kelly and Karen Campbell (Kelly is one of the VP’s at the TBCH) attend the West Franklin campus. We believe strongly in what they are doing to help children in Middle Tennessee.
Pastor Matt served as a trustee for the IMB prior to moving to Franklin. West Franklin loves the fact that every dollar of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goes toward funding missionaries on the field. We believe the IMB is poised for significant global impact in the years to come.
The Shalom Foundation began by the help of West Franklin members, Tommy Sanders and Colon Pope. Many West Franklin members have been intimately involved in this ministry and have been used of God to see it become what it is today.
Brentwood Baptist Church, including all of its campuses, is about one thing: connecting people to the life-changing hope that is found in Jesus. That’s why the church invests efforts and resources into making Him known throughout the world. The annual Hope for the World Missions Offering is one of the ways this happens.
