BAPTIST RESOURCE NETWORK OF PENNSYLVANIA/SOUTH JERSEY
2021 WEEK OF PRAYER AND STATE MISSIONS OFFERING
According to statistics, 14 million people across Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which likely includes people who Iive right next to us, who go to the same grocery store, or even work in our same office. It is important that we take steps to know those who need Christ, pray for them, and allow God to use us to introduce them to Him.
To that end, every year, Baptists across the BRN pray for and give toward missions endeavors right here in our own backyards, helping churches all across our region to KNOW our neighbors, SHOW love to them, and invite them to GROW in Christ. We want to help your church accelerate Kingdom movement by helping you love your neighbors!
We are using this year’s state missions offering as well as our October 5 Accelerate Conference to kick off a three-phase initiative, also called #LovePASJ. The #LovePASJ offering allows us to help churches have a continued focus on their neighbors all across Pennsylvania and South Jersey and to resource them for ministry, especially in the areas of collegiate ministry, compassion ministry, evangelism, and disaster and crisis relief. This year’s offering goal is $50,000, which coincides with our 50th anniversary as a network. As you give, consider how much more we can accomplish for Jesus in the next 50 years!
