Resource Order Form
State Missions Offering resources (bulletin insert, poster, and envelopes) will be mailed to every Utah-Idaho SBC church.
Thank you Utah-Idaho Southern Baptists!
The Great Commission calls us is to share the gospel with everyone across Idaho and Utah, to start new churches where the gospel is being sown, and to strengthen all of our churches to His glory. As we enter this time of prayer and offering, we are reminded we serve a great God who is at work in our midst and desires to work through us in great ways to reach our mission field!
The State Missions Offering provides funds for special mission projects and supports our churches, missionaries, and ministries throughout Idaho and Utah. Your gifts stay in our state convention to help existing churches, start new churches, mobilize Disaster Relief volunteers, support ethnic work, provide outreach on college campuses, and provide funds for many churches for their outreach and church strengthening events. One hundred percent of this offering is utilized in Utah and Idaho.
Our State Missions Offering was formerly known as the York-Dillman State Missions Offering and now you know ‘the rest of the story!’ In 1887, Rev. J.B. York arrived in Clearwater, ID and planted a church in a log cabin schoolhouse. The first work in Utah began when Harold Dillman and his wife, Opal, helped plant a church in Roosevelt in 1944. As a result of these early church starting efforts, many more churches were started, leading to the formation of the Utah-Idaho Southern Baptist Convention in October 1964. Today, approximately 200 congregations meet weekly in our two states speaking in thirteen different languages!
