Thank you for a great May Mission Month... what's next?
What a great month we have had across Australia with May Mission Month 2022!
It was great to personally visit every State during May and share with churches and leaders passionately committed to local and global mission. We’ve had very encouraging feedback to our 'Crossing the Street' theme and short film and we look forward to building on this local and global approach.
Let me say a very big thank you to all our partners who have engaged with us during May. We have celebrated our God at work in local neighbourhoods and in the places where our teams are joining Him on mission around the world. We also have affirmed the power of partnership.
As our new WA State Leader Graham Hill commented: "I was thrilled to see a deep passion and commitment to local and global mission as I travelled around West Australian Baptist churches during May Mission Month. I see dedicated communities of Baptist churches doing and supporting mission Christ's way – vulnerable, humble, and Gospel-focused, embodying the Good News in words and deeds.”
At Baptist Mission Australia we’re committed to helping churches embrace a local-global missional mindset. And there are some great opportunities to support what God is doing around the world.
We can only do what we do around the globe with the wonderful support of our partners and so thank you to all those who have financially and prayerfully invested in our compelling vision during May or who have an ongoing partnership commitment.

As we serve in communities around the world, we have a strong desire to support churches in strengthening their commitment to local and global mission.
As Geoff Maddock, our VIC/TAS State Leader comments: "There's a growing sense in our churches that intercultural mission is the heartbeat of discipleship. Mission matters for our churches - across the world AND across our local streets. A passion for intercultural mission is a blessing for our Australian churches because it makes us better ‘over there’ as well as ‘right here’ in our own backyard."
That’s a passion that want to foster. It’s a passion you can stir up in your own church and across the globe as we partner together.
