We believe God has called Brandywine Valley Baptist Church to be a lighthouse to our local community and our world as we seek to live out the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20). The call of Jesus is to make disciples of all people groups throughout the world. Consider how God may want you to engage in the great commission. Here are some ways we are engaged in the work of missions:
SUMMER 2020 MISSIONS TRIPS: Each summer the Student Ministry offers short-term summer mission trips for students in grades 7-12. This year’s trips are to West Virginia, the Adirondack Mountains and Jamaica. For more information about these trips please contact Melissa Stein.
In addition to these trips we are sponsoring two other trips:
Bahamas Hurricane Relief Mission Trip, June 6-12, 2020. This trip is designed for college-age or twenty-something adults. There is an Information Meeting for this trip on Sunday, February 9 at 11:30 a.m. in Pastor Matthew McNutt’s office. Learn more about this trip.
Kenya Mission Trip, July 4-17, 2020. This trip is designed for families. There is an Information Meeting for this trip on Sunday, February 23 at 11:45 a.m. in Pastor Nate Keeler’s office. Learn more about this trip.
FEBRUARY MISSIONS MONTH: Each February Brandywine focuses on local and global missions. We have guest speakers, local and global missionaries, a missions dinner and opportunities to get engaged. Learn more about Missions Month.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT: We currently financially support over 30 active missionaries representing at least 11 countries. Meet our missionaries. Each spring we have a special “Faith Promise” offering that supports specific missionary projects and/or local ministries. In addition, our students and several adults go on summer missions trips and raise support through our congregation.
