2020 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering & Week of Prayer for International Missions
2020 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering & Week of Prayer for International Missions


We are able to do so much more together, than if we were chasing this vision alone.


What is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering?

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. The offering was officially named in 1918 by Woman’s Missionary Union in honor of the missionary to China who urged churches to start it and give sacrificially.

This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists’ 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is a registered trademark of Woman’s Missionary Union.
