Each Easter season, the North American Mission Board (NAMB) collects an offering for North American Missions. These funds are invested in places like Iowa to help support ministries to reach the people of Iowa for Christ. These NAMB funded ministries include church planting, leadership development, and evangelism projects.
Below are a few of the recent Church Starts, nearly every one funded in part by the North American Mission Board. Be sure to generously support the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering this month and pray for these new churches and their pastors.
