The Week of Prayer for State Missions and the Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions highlight and support missions and ministries in Tennessee. In 1902 W.C. and Mildred Golden challenged Tennessee Baptists to pray for and give to missions within the state and initiated the offering. The offering was named after them in 1943. Today, churches are still encouraged to learn about, pray for, give to, and serve in missions and ministries in Tennessee.

The Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions is a child coming to Christ through Journey Camps. It’s English being taught to someone from another country and sharing Jesus with them in the process. It’s some of the poorest people in America receiving physical help and the gospel. It’s a boy at a youth detention facility being saved and baptized. And so much more!
