World Missions Award Winners Announced During the Church of God International General Assembly (GA2012)

During the World Missions banquet prior to the Church of God International General Assembly in Orlando, Florida, states and local churches were honored for their excellence in missions giving throughout the two years since the previous General Assembly (June 2010-May 2012).

The award categories are based on the size of each congregation and state, with the exception of the largest contribution award, which includes all churches, regardless
