Goal: $475,000

The goal for the 2014 California Mission Offering is $475,000. Gifts to the CMO will support church starting, healthy church evangelism projects, disaster relief and mission action, associational projects and mission support.

This year’s goal is almost a 7 percent increase over the 2013 goal of $444,444. Each year, about 400 congregations participate in giving to CMO.  We would like and need more churches to participate in order to reach our goals each year. This year our goal is have at least 526 churches participate in the prayer and offering emphasis.

In looking at setting your church’s CMO goal for 2014, consider the following.

  • Increase this year’s goal by 7 percent over last year’s goal.
  • Increase this year’s goal by 7 percent over the amount given last year.
  • Examine the chart below and find a goal in the suggested amounts and claim it for 2014.
  • Why not “Be Bold” and double your 2014 goal over last year’s!

The largest allocation in this year’s offering, $190,000, is for starting new churches in the Golden State which are effective in reaching California’s more than 37 million residents.
But, California Southern Baptists also are concerned about the health of existing CSBC congregations. Because of this, $133,000 is allocated for evangelism and healthy churches.
Ministering through associational partnerships is one way local congregations benefit directly from the California Mission Offering. This year $66,500 has been earmarked for associational partnership efforts.
CSBC churches will be involved in mission action and the offering has earmarked $54,150 for disaster relief efforts and direct mission projects such as the “Feeding Those Who Feed Us” for migrant missions.
Mission support projects will receive 6.6 percent, or $31,500, of this year’s offering to help with the season of prayer and promotion for CMO.
