Resources available for George Liele Church Planting Evangelism and Missions Sunday
The International Mission Board has announced the availability of stories, videos and promotional resources for George Liele Church Planting, Evangelism and Missions Sunday, Feb. 6. These materials can be found at imb.org/george-liele/.
Southern Baptists set aside the first Sunday in February to celebrate the work and leadership of Black and African American Southern Baptist missionaries and to recognize the legacy of George Liele.
Liele is one of the most significant figures in the history of Christian missions. While William Carey is recognized as the father of the modern missionary movement, that designation also belongs to George Liele. He was a freed Georgia slave who came to Christ in 1773, at the age of 23. In 1782, he and his family left the United States to share the gospel in Jamaica; a full 10 years before Carey left England.
