IMB to host virtual Sending Celebration Nov. 18


RICHMOND — The International Mission Board will celebrate the appointment of 79 new missionaries from 21 states with a virtual Sending Celebration, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. EST. The missionaries were previously approved for appointment by IMB trustees.

The celebration will include an address by IMB President Paul Chitwood, missionary testimonies, and a time of prayer. As country borders open, they will depart to serve among eight of IMB’s nine affinities.

Three missionaries from Georgia will join others from 21 states in the celebration. Their names – like the overwhelming majority of those being sent – are being withheld for security reasons.

Viewers can join the celebration livestream on Facebook, Vimeo, and on IMB’s Advance the Kingdom app. Missionary testimonies and downloadable prayer cards will be available at
