The Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering (RMMO) really began in the 1930s when American Baptist received a Communion Fellowship Offering on the first Sunday of each month to support retired ministers, missionaries, their widowed spouses, and the elderly clergy within their churches. In 1977, American Baptist Churches USA launched the RMMO to continue this tradition of expressing thankfulness.
