The Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions

In 1902, W.C. and Mildred Golden challenged Tennessee Baptists to pray for and give to missions within the state and initiated the Golden Offering for Tennessee Missions. Named after them in 1943, churches today are still encouraged to learn about, pray for, give to and serve in missions and ministries in Tennessee.
