God’s goal for each life is for that person to come into a relationship with Him, and to be transformed from our old self, into the new self which is a reflection of Him. That transformation is not automatic, nor is it simple, but it can and does happen in the lives of God’s children. The Janie Chapman State Missions Offering helps South Carolina Baptist Churches to be more involved in the transformation of people all through the state, as well as around the world. The funds given to the South Carolina Baptist Convention through the Janie Chapman offering are used in these six different areas.
STRENGTHEN– Develop strong disciple-making cultures within churches.
SERVE– Help churches identify community needs & opportunities.
SHARE– Help churches share the hope of Christ.
SEND– Help churches develop missional strategies to send workers & make disciples.
START– Work to create partnerships to revitalize struggling churches & start new ones.
WMU– Provide resources to churches to help train people in missions.
