AnnieWalkerArmstrongWho is Annie Armstrong? (1850-1938)

Annie Armstrong was born in Baltimore at a time when women were not expected to lead. She served, challenged churches to action and rallied support for missionaries. Ultimately, Annie was recognized as a national Southern Baptist trailblazer renowned for visionary missions leadership. (courtesy of www.anniearmstrong.com)

 

 

Annie’s Contributions
  • Started Bay View Mission for Baltimore’s poor and addicted
  • Served as the first executive of Woman’s Missionary Union, the largest protestant women’s organization in the world
  • Led the formation of missions’ organizations for children
  • Raised support for missionaries to Italian and Jewish immigrants
  • Handwrote over 18,000 letters in one year advocating for missions
  • Refused a salary because she would never give to the Lord “that which costs me nothing.” (2 Samuel 24:24)
  • Initiated fund-raising “brick cards” to build churches in Cuba
  • Gained support for the first black, female missionaries
  • Secured funds to relieve China missionary, Lottie Moon, who had served for 11 years without a furlough

  • Honored in 1934 when The Home Missions Offering was re-named for her to encourage more to follow her sacrificial example

 

Today, over $1 billion has been given through the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering®. All gifts—100%—support more than 5,000 missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries across the U.S. and Canada.
