To kick-off General Assembly Week at the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the annual Silent Art Auction supporting CBF Global Missions will get under way at noon Eastern on Monday. The auction will be held virtually and will run through 3 p.m. on Friday, August 27.
The CBF Silent Art Auction showcases high quality, hand-made art and at the same highlights the stories of people around the world where CBF field personnel serve.
Proceeds from the auction go directly to support the ministries of the CBF field personnel, including their ministry programing budgets and to support the long-term presence costs of all CBF field personnel through the Offering for Global Missions. And for the first time, an item in the auction will also support CBF’s missions internship program called Student.Go.
While the art is beautiful and a primary goal of the action is to raise financial support for missions work around the world, it is more than that. These pieces help tell stories of lives changed. We hope the auction experience will be a catalyst for conversation and inspire prayer for the lives impacted as God works through CBF Global Missions.
In the auction this year are 33 pieces, many which have been provided by field personnel serving in Bali, Indonesia; Tokyo, Japan; Northern Africa; the Netherlands and across Europe; Kiev, Ukraine; Southeast Asia; and Kampala, Uganda.
More information on accessing the CBF Silent Art Auction site to register, to view the items and to start bidding will be available on Monday.
