The North America Field is where we seek to carry the Gospel outside of the Charlotte Area!
ENTER the North America Field:
- Disaster Relief: A Baptists on Mission effort providing training and leadership for disaster relief in NC, nationally, and internationally. The goal is to provide physical and spiritual assistance to help people recover from disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding. Individuals and groups from UHBC have traveled to various hurricane and other disaster relief sites to do tear-out and rebuild work in addition to witnessing and providing moral and emotional support.
- North American Mission Board (NAMB): this SBC organization helps churches equip and send church planters and plant churches in North America. NAMB seeks to share the Gospel through compassion ministry, evangelism, church planting, and chaplaincy. Find out more HERE.
- Appalachian Coalfields Collection (June): A statewide Baptists on Mission effort that led in 2022 to reach their statewide goal of 19,000 backpacks. Backpacks include warm clothing, canned food, toy(s), hygiene items, candy, and a Bible. UHBC will collect items for the backpacks in June.
- Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (April): this offering is taken up each year at Easter to support the work of NAMB. Everything that is given through the Annie Armstrong Offering goes directly to NAMB! Our goal for 2023 is $15,000.
- Heck Jones Offering: this offering supports the ministry of the SBC Women’s Ministry Union (WMU). We do not collect this offering because we budget $3000 annually for Heck Jones.
- North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO): a special offering that supports the ministries of Baptists on Mission, Church Planting, mission camps, associational projects and mobilization ministry projects. We do not collect this offering because we budget $3000 annually for NCMO.
- Cooperative Program: SBC churches pool resources together to financially support their state convention’s mission efforts, NAMB, IMB, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), and the six SBC seminaries in America. Our church currently gives 10% (about $90,000) of our offerings annually to go to the Cooperative Program.
