Frequently Asked Questions: Missions Day Offering

Throughout the spring and early summer, you may have noticed RMM talking about the Missions Day Offering (MDO). Many of our friends are familiar with MDO, but for those who may not be, we’ve prepared a short list of questions and answers about this special event in our annual calendar.

Who is RMM, and what does RMM do with the money from Missions Day Offering?

Rosedale Mennonite Missions is the missions agency of the Conservative Mennonite Conference. We seek to fully engage CMC churches in building God’s kingdom locally and globally, prioritizing disciple making among the least reached. Money from Missions Day Offering goes to help cover the costs of running our programs and administration for long- and short-term workers. This includes all our SEND programs (REACH and City Challenge) and long-term, cross-cultural outreach programs. RMM is committed to using the funds in a God-honoring fashion that will most effectively help God’s kingdom grow on earth.

What is Missions Day Offering?

The Missions Day Offering is a giving opportunity centered on an offering taken up during the Sunday morning service that concludes Conservative Mennonite Conference’s Annual Conference. It also includes funds raised by the Ride for Missions bicycling event, the Rosedale Missions Cruisers motorcycle event, early online contributions, and gifts from our Touchstone donors.

Does RMM do other large-scale fundraising events like Missions Day Offering throughout the year?

God is generous to us through our supporters; besides MDO and other Annual Conference-related events such as Ride for Missions and Rosedale Mennonite Cruisers, RMM does not do any large-scale, general-fund giving events.

I’m not going to be at CMC’s Annual Conference. Is there a way for me to be a part of Missions Day Offering?

Yes! You can either support a rider on Ride for Missions at rfm.rmmweb.org, or donate online at donate.rmmweb.org, and designate your gift for “MDO.”

How can I stay updated on what God is doing with my gift?

You can do this a number of ways. You can follow us on Facebook to get updated information with what is happening. You can sign up for the Mosaic, our e-newsletter that comes out every month. One of the best ways to stay in touch with RMM is to join a prayer chapter in your local community. Or better yet, start one!
