Thank you for exploring how you can support the Lord's work through Blackaby Ministries International!
Blackaby Ministries International has been guided through the years by verses such as John 12:26: “If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. . .” God is at work in our day. During 2012, BMI had the privilege to join God at work: in the marketplace, where God is using business leaders to extend His kingdom; in the military where God is working among its personnel dispersed around the world; among church leaders who have realized that they must elevate the level of their leadership if they are to assist their congregations to advance; people who are crying out for revival because they know it is America’s only hope. What a joy it has been for God to use BMI’s staff to walk with and to encourage those with whom God is working.
The Blackaby family and BMI’s staff want to thank you for your ongoing interest, prayers, financial support, and personal encouragement in these days. Words cannot adequately express how grateful we are for people like you. We are excited about how God has been developing and using our ministry.
We pray your life is positioned to be of maximum use to God and trust you are watching to see where He is at work and joining Him. We pray that you will have the personal joy of being powerfully used of God to extend His kingdom.
Finally, as we look forward to all that 2013 holds for BMI, we continue to need the financial partnership of fellow believers need if we are to meet the ever-expanding opportunities that God places before us. We hope you will pray about whether the Lord is leading you to contribute to BMI and we have listed several areas of ministry focus on this page. And finally, we always enjoy hearing from you. Check our calendar to see if we will be in your area. You might want to sign up to receive our monthly prayer letter or electronic newsletter. Let us know how we might bless your life and ministry.
The BMI Ministry Team
Below are a few opportunities for specific projects.
Project Support Opportunities
1.Continuing Ministry: BMI needs financial support to sustain its day-to-day operations. Although we strive to be economical in our operations, we rely on donations as a key part of meeting our daily obligations to salaries and other expenses. We depend each year on God to move in the hearts of people to partner with us financially.
2. International Baptist Churches Gathering in Switzerland: Richard has been invited to be a main speaker for the annual gathering of International Baptist Churches of Europe, gathering this July in Interlocken, Switzerland. English speaking Baptists from across Europe will attend. This is a great opportunity for BMI to impact European Baptist leaders and we must raise $6,000 for Richard’s travel and related BMI ministry expenses.
3. Native American Ministry: Henry and Tom have been invited to be a part of the North American Native Peoples Mobilization Conference in October, 2013. The conference will take place in New Mexico. The focus of the messages that Henry and Tom will deliver will be an overview of the principles of “Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God” and the significance of these Biblical principles in the life of the Christian On Mission. We will need financial support of $4,000 for travel and related ministry expenses in order to participate in this historic event.
