Rio Portrait - SBC 2011

IMB's (International Mission Board) mission is to make disciples of all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:18-20.
Over 6,000 people groups - 1.7 billion people - still live with little or no access to the Gospel.
 
IMB is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, the USA's largest evangelical denomination, claiming more than 40,000 churches with nearly 16 million members.

It is not surprising to hear missionary Eric Reese say "The cities need the gospel." Despite the daily exposure to violence, gangs, drug users and dealers, Eric is willing to risk it all because Christ gave his all so that many can come to know Him.
