SAMARIA - U.S. Missions

 

U.S. Missions celebrates 76 years this year.  At the 1919 General Council of the Assemblies of God,   W.H. Pope challenged the Council to reach the neglected areas of the United States with the gospel.  A resolution was presented and adopted, compelling the young Assemblies of God movement to “saturate the neglected districts of this country with the Pentecostal message.”  This resolution marked the foundations of the Assemblies of God U.S. Missions Division today.

Financial support to our camps is a budget item that can be included in the 20 percent designated account of U.S. Missions.

CAMPS
