Give to Missions
There are multiple ways you can support missions at and through Carmel Baptist Church. When you give to the main tithes and offering, 10% of those funds automatically supports the missions budget at Carmel. The GO Offering, collected throughout the year, goes to support thousands of national and international missionaries as well as other support programs throughout the state. You can support individuals going on Carmel short term mission trips by contributing to their individual accounts. To support young men and women seeking to share the gospel throughout the nations, you can contribute to the Lois Bumpus Scholarship Fund. See below for more information.
Carmel Baptist allocates 10% of Tithes and Offerings to support Local and Global Missions. Funds support a variety of partners and agencies identified through our Neighbors, Nations and Church Planting strategies.
Neighbors Strategy: Funds are used to support Carmel Serve Initiatives, Least of These ministries and Local Missions Partners, including Beds for Kids, Changed Choices, Charlotte Rescue Mission, Christ Our Shepherd, Habitat for Humanity- Matthews, Jackson Park Ministries, Joni & Friends, Lois Lodge, Love Inc, Pregnancy Resource Center, Project 658, and With Love from Jesus.
Nations Strategy: Funds are used to support short term Mission Trips, Disaster Relief, Global Mission Partnerships, Japanese and Slavic International Ministries in Charlotte, and 26 National and International Missionaries.
Th Carmel Family has the opportunity to give to the Global Outreach Offering. This offering, combined with offerings from all other Southern Baptist churches supports the SBC Cooperative Program funding the two largest mission agencies in the world: the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board along with all six SBC seminaries. Funds also go to the Lottie Moon Offering to support international missionaries and to the Annie Armstrong offering to support North American missionaries. All gifts to these two offerings go 100% to support missionaries. State and local mission efforts are supported through the Baptist State Convention of NC (Baptists on Mission, NC Disaster Relief, NC Baptist Children’s Home), and the local Metrolina Baptist Association.
Because of your generosity, Carmel is always one of the top contributors in North Carolina to the Cooperative Program!
