2012 IMO materials will be sent to churches in August. The Illinois Missions Offering (IMO) is an annual emphasis to support nearly 100 missionaries across the state. Suggested dates for this year’s offering are Sept. 18-25, but churches are encouraged to plan a week of prayer and offering date that works best with their calendar.
The state-wide IMO goal is $430,000; last year, Illinois Baptists gave $390,229 to the IMO, $20,000 more than the previous year.
Gifts to this year’s offering will be spent next year to make it possible to do more missions including supporting nearly 100 Illinois missionaries, starting 25 Southern Baptist churches, training 20,000 church leaders, initiating more and supporting 30 existing campus ministries, providing support and partnering with 33 local associations.
