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 40 other countries. Our Congregation Mission Offerings (CMO) are the main source for funding synodical ministry.
