In the late 1800’s women were not expected to be leaders, to speak up, to be visionaries…Annie Armstrong was never concerned with what the world expected. Traveling throughout the U.S., Annie encouraged missionaries and challenged churches to give and support missions. She and the SBC women led out in transforming funding for missions helping to secure the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board) and Foreign Mission Board (now International Mission Board) in taking the gospel around the globe. Annie died on December 20, 1938 in Baltimore, but her legacy and heart for missions lives on. Today, over $1 billion has been given through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering®.
All funds—100 percent—support the North American Mission Board’s Send Network church planting missionaries and Send Relief compassion missionaries throughout the U.S., Canada and their territories. With committed support from SBC churches and individuals, the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering will continue to fulfill God’s mission of showing His love through action.
