September is California Missions month
Theme for this year's CMO is "Love With Action."

September is California Mission Offering month for California Southern Baptist Convention. Since the entire month is designated for California missions, churches are encouraged to use materials - poster, bulletin insert, prayer guide, and DVD resources - to observe the prayer and offering emphasis throughout the month.

Theme for this year's CMO is "Love With Action" based on 1 John 3:18 (NIV). The goal for the 2009 California Mission Offering is $450,000. Gifts to the CMO will support community ministry, church starting, healthy church and associational partnership projects.

Purposes for the offering are:


  • ■To educate California Southern Baptists concerning the urgent need of reaching our state for Jesus Christ.
  • ■To encourage California Southern Baptists to pray for California missions and state missionaries who work with churches to share the Gospel.
  • ■To encourage California Southern Baptists to go on mission and share their faith.
  • ■To encourage California Southern Baptists to give so missionaries and ministries throughout the state can be deployed to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ



Missionary Spotlight:
Howard Burkhart

BENICIA - "Basically, I was born in the church and grew up in the church," Howard Burkhart says. "The pastor kept talking about people being lost and not having Jesus. When I was about seven, I realized I didn't have Jesus, so, on my own I prayed to receive Christ as my Savior. I was baptized shortly thereafter."

Howard is a language church starting strategist with the California Southern Baptist Convention (CSBC) Church Starting Group. His ministry includes planting churches among often-overlooked language groups, working with the deaf and hearing impaired, and coordinating "Basic Training for Church Planters."
