2014 Vision Virginia Week of Prayer & Offering for State Missions
2014 Offering Goal: $250,000 | Week of Prayer: September 21 – 28
What is Vision Virginia?
Vision Virginia is a missions offering. 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 things like the following:
- Appalachian Ministries
- Baptist Builders
- Church Planting
- Church Strengthening
- The DC Mission Center
- Disaster Relief
- English as a Second Language
- Statewide Evangelism
- Food Distribution
- Leadership Development
- Ministry Intern Scholarships
- Property for Church Plants
- Ready Church
- Seminarian Scholarships
- Worship Equipment for Church Plants
Vision Virginia is also a call to pray for these ministries and the work of the Lord around Virginia and the world.
But that's not all.
Vision Virginia is the people that all of these ministries help — and those who serve in churches all across the state. Vision Virginia only exists because people do. After all, God loves people, and His mission for the Church is to love people and help them build a relationship with Him through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Vision Virginia is the mission field, but it's also the mission force, called and empowered by a missions-hearted God.
Please remember that the Vision Virginia offering is a special gift beyond your tithe and offering to your local church.
Week of prayer
One week each year, from Sunday to Sunday, Southern Baptists join together in praying for state missions. The official Week of Prayer for 2014 is September 21 – 28, 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.
