INTERNATIONAL MISSION BOARD
IMB partners with churches to empower limitless missionary teams who are making disciples and multiplying churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God. More than 4,800 people groups - close to 1 billion people - still live with little or no access to the gospel.
Georgia Baptist Mission Board
The Georgia Baptist Mission is made up of autonomous, cooperating churches that partner together through the Cooperative Program and special mission offerings and mission efforts to share Jesus Christ across Georgia, throughout North America, and around the world. Our Convention of churches may be best described by our Mission Statement: "The Georgia Baptist Convention is a living partnership of churches growing in grace, strengthening one another in faith and working together in obedience to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission of Jesus Christ."
God has been preparing Brian and Melissa Shepard to plant a church for the past three years. Although they love to innovate and pioneer new things, Brian and Melissa realize God is the One who is calling them to plant a new church. They are anointed leaders with a passion for worship, creating environments for growth, and equipping and mobilizing the local church to become biblical missionaries. With the gifts of leadership and administration, Brian and Melissa have experienced building, cultivating, and sending teams that have made an impact for Jesus Christ globally. They are excited about this new journey and have wholeheartedly stepped out in faith by moving to SF.
NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD
The North American Mission Board exists to work with churches, associations and state conventions in mobilizing Southern Baptists as a missional force to impact North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism and church planting.
We accomplish that through Send North America, our national strategy for mobilizing churches to plant churches and mobilizing church planters and other missionaries to assist with those efforts.
ITM: INTERNATIONAL TRIBAL MINISTRIES
At FBC Cordele, we believe the Great Commission is not optional. We are called by God to go into the entire world from our neighborhood, to those who don't know God in our state to the sick in the back country of Bolivia, South America. As we go it is our goal to give thanks to the Lord among the people and not from afar. We accomplish this through medical treatment, eye glass clinics, sports camps, women's confrences, and making it our goal to love people the way Jesus did: Where they are now!
One Saturday a month, volunteers from FBC go out into the community to build handicap ramps for those in need. Since the start of this ministry, over 100 families now have the ability to enter their homes with easier access.
Over the past 4 years we have grown a partnership with FCA's Urban Baseball Initiative in Atlanta, GA. We have served this Middle School Baseball League by having a team there on their annual Opening Day. We provide food for the teams, run a concession stand, interact with families, help clean up the field, do devotionals with the teams and take team photos. This day trip is a great doorway into other mission opportunities.
A Motorcycle Ministry passionate about sharing Christ with the World. As the Lord inspires practical ministry opportunities, we are diligent to share the Good News of the salvation message of Jesus Christ to every person we encounter.
Kairos Prison Ministry
