Nicy Murphy Colorado Missions Offering
The Colorado State Missions Offering in honor of Nicy Murphy aims to provide resources to churches and missionaries to help saturate Colorado with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each September, we have a week of prayer for state missions work as well as taking up of the aforementioned offering. Every penny of what you give goes to help churches, plants, replants, and other ministries make hopeful, joyful disciples!
By the way, who is Nicy Murphy?
In 1955 Nicy Murphy, a young, single woman from Oklahoma, became a pioneer servant among Southern Baptists in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
The Colorado Baptist General Convention was organized in 1956, and Nicy served as the first director of Woman’s Missionary Union for the five-and-a-half state convention. She raised the banner of mission education and missionary support throughout the growing convention. She gave leadership to teaching new believers and young churches the value of being on mission where they lived and extending their influence to all parts of the world.
Nicy retired from vocational missionary service in 1976 and moved to Littleton, where she became a member of ARBC. She continued to serve as a volunteer missionary, teaching survival English to Cambodian and Laotian refugees and Chinese adults. She opened her home to internationals for lodging, meals and Christian love. She retired in 1997 and moved to Guymon, Oklahoma, and then to Amarillo, Texas, to be near family.
On November 13, 2012, Nicy Murphy went home to her Lord. The lives she touched for Christ are forever changed. We celebrate her life, the Kingdom impact she has made throughout Colorado, the surrounding states and the uttermost parts of the earth.
One hour east of Pueblo is the town of Sugar City. With a population of 260 people, many could overlook Sugar City, but not God and not ARBC. Every two to three months, a group from our church is sent on-mission to help with the food distribution. We work in conjunction with Eddie Nicandro and Hands of God Ministry.
Take a look:
Our aim is to help all of Denver and the nations believe Jesus is enough–and we are taking the gospel to the nations. We have taken the gospel to Hungary since 2001, partnering with a house church in Gyor. Now, we are taking the gospel to help establish a church in southern Trinidad and Tobago.
On top of this, one of our pastors, Scott Morter II, has been appointed via WorldVenture as a missionary to Ireland, where he hopes to be on the field in the fall of 2018.
When December rolls around, you’ll hear much about our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, where every penny you give goes to help the 4000+ Southern Baptist missionaries take the gospel to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). Click here to learn more about Lottie Moon.
