Equipped for the Great Imperative: Make Disciples
March 3-4, 2022
Join us for MPact Montana 2022! MPact will be held at the Delta Marriott Hotel in Helena.

St. Augustine famously said, "Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die." Bitterness is forgetting who your enemy is and waging a war in your mind against another person. Our enemy is the devil and evil, not other people. Romans 12:21 says, "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Evil will come, people will sin against us, and circumstances won't line up with our expectations. How are we going to help people fight back with weapons of kindness, grace, and forgiveness? Join us as we explore the treasures in God's Word surrounding this vital topic.

Reach Montana Missions Offering
Each September we attempt to raise awareness of our local mission field through our Reach Montana Missions Offering emphasis. It is a missions offering unlike any other we receive because it is solely funded through the gifts from our MTSBC churches. Additionally, every dollar given stays in Montana and is used for specific ministries in our state. This year the offering will be used to help strengthen our churches, reach the lost, meet human needs like hunger and literacy missions, and provide emergency financial assistance for our pastors.
Although emphasized in September, the offering is received year-round. Our 2022 Reach Montana Missions Offering goal is $80,000.
PrayMT ~ All-State Online Prayer Gathering
Wednesday, August 31
6:30 pm MDT
This past spring the 406 Day of Prayer and Fasting was a BIG SUCCESS!
In April, approximately 75 people representing 19 different churches united in heartfelt, passionate prayer on the date represented by our area code, April 6 (4/06). Online there were churches gathered in homes, and fellowship halls. There were families gathered in living rooms. There were pastors and wives, side by side. Most people who participated were from our state, and a few gathered online from states like Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Together, we cried out to God for our state! Many others who could not make the online gathering, informed me that they would also be praying with all of us on that day.
I’m overwhelmed at the prospect of what God might do if our MTSBC family continues seeking God and crying out to him on behalf of lostness in our state. It’s time to do it again! Will you join us for another state-wide prayer gathering?
Please feel free to copy the link and send it to friends, family, church members, and mission partners to join in our time of prayer across Montana for Montana.
Cooperative Program Resources for Churches
The NEW Cooperative Program Church Digital Kit is now available on the SBC webpage.
The resource kit is pastor friendly and church focused. This will not take the place of what you are doing your own state, but will be a user friendly digital kit to keep the Cooperative Program front and center in the local church.
Contained within this kit is a set of resources to help you as you call your church to greater financial stewardship and support of missions and ministry through the Cooperative Program.
This kit includes:
- PDFs of articles to assist you in discussing stewardship and giving in your church
