Retired Ministers and Missionaries
The RMMO will be collected in April 2022. Although, nationally, the offering is collected in November or December, we moved it to let the offering have a month of its own. The RMMO makes it possible to provide emergency assistance in times of crisis and to send “Thank You” checks to our American Baptist Churches’ retired ministers and missionaries and their widowed spouses who were in service for 15 years or more. 43% of the offering is designated to meet emergency and special financial needs. 57% is distributed in the form of “Thank you” checks. In 2020, 3,371 checks were distributed to recipients and their families. Prayerfully consider this ministry as you think about a retired minister who touched your life with his/her care and service.
