State
This offering is collected for state missions each year and 
is hosted by the Louisiana Baptist Convention.  
  The work of the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering is making it possible to share the Gospel in such a variety of ways that people of such diverse need hear and have opportunity to respond. Your gift through the Georgia Barnette State Missions Offeringhelps both mission churches and ministry centers. It builds mission churches and supplements mission pastors. It provides for special mission projects and for mission education. Diverse needs, diverse methods, and diverse tools are part of the many faces of Louisiana missions. They provide our challenge and our mandate.
Other Recent State Missions include:
Krotz Springs, Night On the Town - Opelousas, Water/Tract distribution - New Orleans, helping homeless in Baton Rouge

National
This offering is collected each year around Easter.  The funds are sent to the 
North American Mission Board to help them with the ministries and missionaries 
they support across North America.
When people give to the offering, 100 percent of their gift will be transformed into missionary salaries and ministry supplies. Those missionaries and supplies will help others hear the message of Christ and respond in faith to His offer of salvation. Time and again our missionaries relate how the offering is their lifeblood. They know that behind each penny given, there is a Southern Baptist who believes in what they do and are affirming the need to equip them to share the gospel with those who need a Savior.
Other Recent National Missions include:
trips to
Kodiak and Kenai, Alaska; Laredo, Texas; Jackson, Mississippi*; Nashville, Tennessee*
