Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

Annie Armstrong Easter Offering

The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering was started in 1895 by Woman’s Missionary Union® (WMU) to benefit the work of the Home Mission Board (now North American Mission Board). In 1934, it was named in honor of Annie Armstrong, a bold missions advocate and WMU’s first national executive leader. Today, more than $2 billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals.

Every dollar given goes to train and resource more than 2,200 missionaries and their families involved in church planting and compassion ministries who share the life-transforming gospel of Jesus Christ across the United States, Canada and their territories.  In 2020, NAMB and Southern Baptists came together to add 857 new congregations in North America.  Our gifts towards the AAEO goes towards the mission field in mission mobilization, church planting, and evangelism.  Find more information here.

Annie Armstrong (1850-1938)

Annie was born in Baltimore at a time when there was little opportunity for women. Yet, her devotion to Christ led her to a life of service and leadership. She organized women to pray, to give and to meet the needs around them. She challenged pastors and churches to action and rallied vital support for missionaries. Ultimately, Annie was recognized as a national Southern Baptist trailblazer for her visionary leadership that still inspires millions today.
