Missions & Outreach

Missions at Brainerd Church

We are becoming more involved in Missions – local and global. Jesus told us in Acts 1:8 that we would be witness in our communities, our region, country and globally. We seek to be obedient to the scripture and are getting more and more involved as doors open to us for mission and outreach.
