The first Heart for Missions Consignment Sale took place in the fall of 2001. It was small, to say the least–about 30 consignors and we made $500. But we were thrilled to have raised that much for missions! Later, when we decided to name the sale, only one thing came to mind: we started this sale to raise money for missions, because we all have a heart for sharing the Gospel with those in our community and around the world. Therefore, Heart for Missions seemed like the perfect name! In the past fifteen years, we have seen this sale literally multiply, in the number of consignors, as well as the amount sold and donated to missions.
