BGMC Goes Over $7 Million in 2015
From the Desk of Mary Boyd, BGMC Coordinator
We are excited to report that $7,003,196.12 was given to BGMC during 2015!
2015 giving increased 10 percent over giving for 2014!
Since 1949, $133,563,962.44 has now been given to missions through BGMC. That's amazing!
Please remember that these are only preliminary reports because we are still getting adjustments every day, but we wanted to get these figures out so you and your churches can rejoice with us.
Thank you for all that you do to support missions, to teach your kids about missions, and to sacrifice for the cause of missions. Millions of lives have been touched and won to the kingdom of God because of you, your church, and your kids. Thank you!
Highlights from 2015:
- The Peninsular Florida District was the top giving district in the nation. They gave $865,981.73 to BGMC! This is the first time in the history of BGMC that a district has given over $800,000.00 to BGMC! Congratulations to the district CE director, Steve Powell; the district children’s director, Sydney Morrow; and the district BGMC Coordinator, Chuck Padgett.
- The top giving church in the nation was First Assembly of God in Fort Myers, FL. They gave $121,844.22 to BGMC. This is more than double of what they gave in 2014. Congratulations to lead pastor, Rev. Dan Betzer, and children’s pastors, Rev. Sammy and Jan Whaley!
- The district with the highest per capita giving is the West Florida District at $12.24 per person.
Attached are four reports showing the top 10 churches in the nation, the top 5 churches in each division, one showing the districts rankings and one showing the grand totals. Please remember that division 6 is our language churches, and the language division has its own breakdown of divisions. When you look at the reports, you’ll be amazed at the amount of money given by our smaller churches. So many people think that it’s only the big churches that give to missions, but you’ll notice that lots of small churches give huge amounts to BGMC. The size of the church doesn’t matter. It’s the size of your passion for missions and for creating that heart of compassion in the kids you minister to.
The top two churches in each division and the top 10 churches in the nation will be invited to be our special guests at the BGMC banquet on Thursday, April 21st, The banquet is being held during the BGMC Fly-In taking place in Springfield, Missouri. We’ll be contacting you with details. Please put this date on your calendars.
All of the 2015 giving reports will not be posted on the BGMC website for a couple of weeks. Changes are still coming in, and we want to make sure we have most of the changes before we post all of the reports. One of the reports we are currently working on is the top 100 churches in each division. This is an amazing report to see what the different size churches have done for BGMC. A preliminary church report has been sent to your district office. If you want to check your BGMC total, please contact your district office. Please let us know if you find any mistakes.
Once again, THANK YOU for all that you are doing to support our missionaries and missions organizations through BGMC!
