Congregation Mission Offerings

Our congregations carry out the Great Commission both locally and by joining together as a synod to reach “all nations” by training, equipping, sending, and supporting workers in the U.S. and 45 other countries – and exploring outreach opportunities in 19 prospective new mission fields. Our Congregation Mission Offerings (CMO) are the main source for funding synodical ministry.

Thank you to all congregations who gave $23.39 million in CMO in 2023! Also, thanks to the 99 percent of congregations who submitted their 2024 CMO subscriptions by the February 2nd deadline! We praise God and commend you for your partnership in Christ’s kingdom! Watch the Together e-newsletter for CMO updates.
