World Hunger Offering

The BGAV established a Virginia Offering for World Hunger in 1982 and have contributed over $6.5 million in the past two decades alone. Half of these funds are used to support local and domestic ministries through the process outlined above, while the other half are distributed for global hunger relief through our partners worldwide.

BGAV churches can contribute to the World Hunger Offering throughout the year by designating gifts or donating online.

In addition, churches can mark their calendars for a special World Hunger Sunday emphasis on Sunday, October 14, 2018.
