Center for World Evangelism – April 2020 Update

Dear Friend and Supporter of Vision Baptist Missions,

We are certainly living in interesting times! I do not know when the Lord will return; but with everything that is happening around the world, it definitely feels like it could be soon!

The return of Christ should motivate us to do all we can to get the gospel to the world. At Vision Baptist Missions and the Our Generation Training Center, we are striving to do more to mobilize, train, and send out missionaries around the world.

In order to see our vision of sending hundreds of missionaries around the world, we need to purchase a piece of land and build buildings that will allow our training center and mission to expand. We have already grown to nearly 70 missionary families while only operating out of the Vision Baptist Church building. Clearly it is time to expand.

In order to do this, we need your help. We have already had about $395,000 donated toward this project, of which $10,000 was given this past month! Thank you to those who have already given.

For those who have not yet donated, would you please pray about what you can do? I realize these are trying times, but this is also a great opportunity to take a step of faith and seek first the kingdom of God.

Would you please pray about what you and your church can do? We are in need of $205,000 by July 30th to make the land payment; and then we will need another $1.4 million to build the buildings. This may seem like a large amount; but if another 321 of our friends gave $5,000 or 160 gave $10,000, we would have what we need.

If you would like more information about the center, you can go to You can also contact me directly at or call our office 770-456-5881.

To give, you can make your check out to “Vision Baptist Missions” and mark it “Center for World Evangelism.” You can also give online.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration,

W. Austin Gardner
Pastor, Vision Baptist Church
