World Mission Offering 2023


The World Mission Offering provides an opportunity for individuals and churches to participate in God’s life-changing mission around the globe. 

“What does the worker gain from his toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on humankind. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of humankind; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” ECCLESIASTES 3:9-11

Verse 11 is the highlight: “The Lord has made everything beautiful in its time.” Beautiful can also be translated as “lovely, fulfilling, or awe-inspiring.” Like the sugar maple that has the most vibrant fire-orange and sun-drenched yellow leaves each autumn, it catches our attention as we become mesmerized by the mystery of God’s grace.

International Ministries’ Executive Director and CEO Rev. Sharon Koh invites you to take part in the transformational work of IM’s global servants and partners as we seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ around the world.

These World Mission Offering videos give you a first-hand look into how God is at work around the world through your partnership in ministry.

In Malaysia, IM Global Servants Aaron & Valerie Osterbrock are helping to prepare seminary students for pastoral ministry.


In South Africa, Global Servant Faye Yarbrough is mentoring and tutoring children who benefit greatly from the additional support and attention.


The WMO offering will be collected at First Baptist, Marion, IA, during the month of October. The Outreach committee has set a goal of $800.

Your gifts can be brought to the church through October 29. Mark “WMO” on your check. Also, you can give online via our church’s e-giving platform by clicking on this button and selecting WMO on the “To:” pulldown.

Through International Ministries’ World Mission Offering (WMO), every fall thousands across the country celebrate and give financial support to ministries that God is using to transform the world.

God can use your participation not only to change lives internationally, but also to deepen your own discipleship in Christ. You can can witness God’s lovely work of bringing God’s kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven.”
