Global Mission Offering - Why Give?

How can one  person or one church make an impact for Christ?

The Global Mission Offering (GMO) provides that opportunity. CNBC churches have an annual missions emphasis, during which the whole church learns about missions and ministry in Canada, North America and internationally. The church is inspired by true stories from missionaries, church planters and mission teams. You can be a part of future stories by giving to the GMO, knowing that your gifts will help others to hear about Jesus and then be discipled.

Because you give, international missionaries are reaching unreached peoples and places around the world, making disciples and multiplying churches for the glory of God.

  • A team of four from Quebec went to Haiti to help start the rebuild of a church that was destroyed by a hurricane. While they were there, the message of the Gospel was preached and six people were baptized.

  • A group of young adults and their leaders from six different cities went to Athens, Greece to minister to refugee families and individuals from Syria and Iraq. They were able to show the love of Jesus as they brought food stuffs, gave out diapers, picked up litter, hugged children and listened to stories, many of them horrific.

Because you give, CNBC churches partner with the North American Mission Board to empower a church planting movement that invests in the Kingdom and has a powerful impact all over North America for Jesus Christ.

  • “We were given a very generous gift, from the North American Mission Board. … During the first year … we wanted to give back and gave [an offering of] just over $13,000”—Garth Leno, church planter missionary at The Gathering, Windsor, Ontario.

  • In Canada 62 percent of CNBC baptisms last year were in churches planted since 2010 and 47 percent of all current CNBC churches were started since 2010 (as of June 2017).

  • Connect Church, a new plant in Calgary, baptized eight people on May 28, in the theatre lobby where they meet. God is moving in Calgary!

Because you give, churches are strengthened as their pastors and leaders have opportunities for training.

  • Funding is provided for Vacation Bible School and Sunday School teacher training.

  • Starting Point Church, Burlington, Ontario, was able to host a community outreach Orchard Egg Hunt.

  • Springbank Chinese Church, Calgary, was able to purchase Chinese Bibles.

  • A Spanish church in Ontario was able to purchase Spanish discipleship materials.

Because you give, churches are strengthened as ministry couples are encouraged and refreshed through CNBC Oasis retreats offered each year.

  • Oasis: “What a blessing it is to have an opportunity to be together as husband and wife and just take a break from ministry”—Matthew and Heather Bond.

  • Oasis: It is “a nice time for us to pause, to slow down, to rest, but also to connect with other planters and pastors”—Nathan and Lindsey Ammons.

Because you give, the GMO provides grants, which help CNBC church members and pastors participate in mission outreach.
