A voice of cooperative reason during this era of Oklahoma Baptist life emerged from an Alabama transplant -Edna McMillan. The wife of an Oklahoma oilman, she labored to raise money from Baptist congregations for work among Native-American tribes and championed aggressive church planting where local congregations would become the center of life for an entire community. During her time as president of the Woman's Missionary Union of Oklahoma (1927-1938), she encouraged local churches to see themselves as resources of "gospel wealth" for which they were responsible to both "share and send" through cooperative efforts.

The Oklahoma State Missions Offering is named in honor of Edna McMillan, a woman who led the passionate cause of reaching Oklahomans with the Gospel.
Edna learned early in life how to serve others as she grew up in Attala, Mississippi in the late 1800s. Her parents were a great influence as she learned how to pray from her father and how to serve others from her mother.
After graduating with honors from the Huntsville Female College in Alabama in 1890, she married a young Baptist man, George McMillan. She respected his quest for Godly character and was inspired when she first met him during a church service where he pledged a generous amounto to a special missions offering.
...
Edna held numerous roles in the church and worked diligently and tirelessly for Oklahoma Woman's Missionary Union. She held many positions in WMU and served as state WMU president for 11 years from 1927 to 1938.
Edna was an effective communicator and consistently challenged Oklahoma Baptists to give generously to state missions. In 1932, she said, "A rich man is one who has enough for himself and enough left over to help others. Though he be possessed of millions, a man is poor, who has only enough for himself."
The state WMU Board in 1939 met in Muskogee where Edna was surprised to hear the recommendation and later unanimous vote to name the State Missions Offering in her honor. Through her many travels and days away from home to champion the mission cause, Edna never accepted a penny for her expenses.
God gave Edna McMillan the understanding that there is no better time to reach the lost than today. She understood that Now Is the Time to reach Oklahomans with the Gospel. Will you continue in her legacy?
