If you're a Sender, you are a crucial supporter with a heart for being in the action but you're unable to do so. You enjoy helping others fulfill their dreams and you might be pretty good at crunching the numbers when it comes to money. You don't have to be rich to be a sender—it may be as simple as looking at your lifestyle and scaling a few things back in order to help send a goer into the mission field and make a difference in the world on your behalf.



We have several opportunities to give financially, either by selecting a specific mission trip (average cost ranges from $200 - $2,500) or by donating to our Global Missions Offering (GMO). The GMO contributes funds to our church plants, our international mission trips, African Vision of Hope, and the International Mission Board’s Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Each year, a percentage of our church budget also goes to help the Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program for local and international missions. Designated amounts from the budget are also given to help support Baptist Children’s Home (Carmi, IL) and local missions through the Gateway Baptist Association’s work in the Metro East.
