CMO Prayer Requests

Here are prayer requests from CSBC state staff and North American Mission Board church planting catalysts for use in promoting the California Mission Offering in 2017. The prayer requests reflect the importance of the offering emphasis, "It Begins with You." These prayer requests would be excellent for use in a CMO sermon or mission presentation and are meant to be integrated into the age-level mission studies. Choose prayer requests to be voiced at each church service in September; also use them throughout your CMO promotion including church bulletins and newsletters.

Request a Speaker

A speaker is a great opportunity to educate congregations about California missions. California Southern Baptist Ministry Resource Center missionaries and directors of missions are available to speak at your church about California Mission Offering anytime you have a mission emphasis.

If your church has a specific interest, such as church starting or evangelism, contact one of the state missionaries whose ministry assignment falls into the particular category about which you are interested.

Directors of missions also are a great source of inspiration about California missions.

Select a speaker from the lists below:

If you would like for California Southern Baptist Convention to arrange for a missionary speaker, click here to provide information so we may best fill your needs.

If a missionary can't be secured to speak at your church, consider conducting a telephone interview using either a speaker-phone or cellular phone. Missionaries usually can provide photos of their ministries that could be displayed for the congregation through PowerPoint or other visual media while the interview is being conducted. To schedule a phone interview, it is best to contact the missionary directly to work out details.  Please use the lists above to contact the missionary who best fits your needs.

For more information about enlisting a missionary speaker, contact Linda Barone at 559.229.9533, x 223 or click here to send an e-mail.

Use e-mails to promote CMO

Email is a great way to keep your church connected throughout the week. When used effectively it can help you to pastor and lead your church.
