5 reasons to support NCMO

July 30, 2019

Each year, the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina places an emphasis on the North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO), a special offering that supports the ministries of N.C. Baptist Men (NCBM), church planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilization ministry projects.

NCMO is received during a special church emphasis each September, but contributions may be made at any time throughout the year. NCMO is an opportunity to impact lostness through various ministries that God uses to draw more people to Himself. The goal for this year’s offering is $2.1 million.

Following are five reasons your church should consider making a financial gift to NCMO.

NCMO is an opportunity to impact lostness through various ministries that God uses to draw more people to Himself.

Loving
Supporting NCMO accomplishes kingdom work by obedience to Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves. This year’s theme is “Known by Love” based on John 13:35 — “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” N.C. Baptist Men, also known as Baptists on Mission, involves thousands of people in 18 different ministries such as disaster relief, agricultural missions, and dental and health screenings. NCBM sees the world’s lostness and brokenness and demonstrates compassion for others by meeting their physical needs, which builds bridges to meeting their spiritual needs as well.

Serving
NCMO supports two mission camps in North Carolina located in Robeson and Cleveland counties. These camps host men, women and student volunteers throughout the year. Your support of NCMO allows these volunteers to participate in service projects that range from patching a leaky roof to renovating a needy family’s home. Projects such as these serve as platforms for sharing the gospel.

Going
Each year, gifts to NCMO help mobilize thousands of volunteers for mission projects in North Carolina, the United States and around the world. For many, it’s their first opportunity to serve on a mission trip, and for others, God uses this opportunity to call them into a lifetime of service. Volunteers serve in a variety of ways all over the world in places like Armenia, Cuba, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Hungary, India, Romania and elsewhere.

Planting
One of the best ways to reach lost people is by establishing new churches, and gifts to NCMO go directly to church planting efforts in North Carolina. Since 2007, gifts to NCMO have helped start more than 1,000 churches across the state, averaging more than 100 new church plants annually. In 2018, new churches reported over 7,000 professions of faith.

Discipling
Every aspect of NCMO and the ministries it supports point to the overarching goal of making disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. As such, all of the money given to NCMO goes directly to funding ministry work locally, regionally, nationally and globally. Will you give so that others may know Jesus and become His disciple?
