Similar to Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong, 100% of the gifts given through Vision Virginia go directly to the mission field. The fund supports dozens of ministries, including the things that are listed in the eight Days of Prayer.
It is a call to pray for these ministries, the people serving in these ministries and the work of the Lord in Virginia and around the world.
Vision Virginia only exists because people do. People who need to hear the Gospel, and people who serve in churches all across the state. God loves people, and His mission is to love, serve, and disciple them to look more like Him every day.
Virginia is a mission field to be sure. But the churches of the SBC of Virginia can be an awesome mission force to reach not only locally but also around the globe. It’s allowing God to open our eyes to opportunities through an Acts 1:8 strategy.
Please remember that the Vision Virginia offering is a special gift beyond your tithe and offering to your local church.
One week each year, from Sunday to Sunday, Southern Baptists join together in praying for state missions. The official Vision Virginia Week of Prayer for 2016 is September 18 – 25th, but our prayer guides are un-dated so that your church may join together in prayer whenever it fits you best. The week of prayer emphases are listed below by day. Please join with us in lifting these ministries up before the Father.
God so loved the World! SBC of Virginia churches are working together to reach Virginia and beyond with the Gospel. We are using God-given opportunities to meet human needs that will allow us to share the Gospel message. Pray for God to move even more churches to join together to reach the lost in places like Greece, Barcelona, and Nepal… and beyond!
Students yielding to the call of ministry and who are completing their seminary education can benefit from this incredible financial resource. Pray that God will work through these gifts to encourage His ministers in their formal training.
No matter the church health status, whether starting, growing, running steady, plateauing, declining, or closing its doors, all congregations need our prayers. Pray for ministry leaders to be encouraged and equipped to carry the mission that God has for their local body of believers.
This scholarship provides assistance to churches who benefit from a ministry intern. Pray for church leaders as they invest in the next generation and for ministry interns as they gain valuable experience and faithfully serve.
This is one of the core values of the SBC of Virginia. This convention is committed to penetrating lostness through church planting. Pray that God will bless new planters and that He will continue to provide new partnerships from churches.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is the third largest responding agency in North America! Praise God for all of the Virginia volunteers trained and ready to respond. Pray that God will raise up many others to be equipped for the next disaster.
This region of America is extremely impoverished. Families lack the basic supplies that many others take for granted everyday. Pray that God will continue to work through SBC of Virginia churches with mission projects like Christmas Backpacks for Appalachia.
Many churches prepare and share meals each month with impoverished families in their communities. The Vision Virginia offering partially supports these efforts. Pray that our hearts will burden for those who go hungry and that God will bless our efforts.
