What is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering?

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873 to 1912. She saw firsthand the world's greatest problem — LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the gospel compelled her to write letters to American churches describing the need for a greater missionary presence.

She pleaded for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain more missionaries. This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® and is distributed through the International Missions Board.

100%

of your gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering enable gospel transformation among the unreached.

  • Every single day, close to 158,000 enter a Christless eternity and many have never heard the gospel. 

  • 59% of the world’s population (4.6 billion people) are considered unreached.

  • God’s vision in Revelation 7:9-10 is for a vast multitude that no one can count, representative of every nation—all peoples, tribes, and tongues—standing around the throne in glorious praise to God. We must grieve for lostness throughout the world as the gospel is the only remedy—and sending and supporting missionaries is the only answer to get that glorious message out.

  • Your financial gifts will fuel the labors of over 3,500 IMB missionaries throughout the world.
