To build passion and awareness for missions within the church family and promote participation in the Great Commission. The mission team brings opportunities to participate in missions through conferences, service, prayer and giving; we want to broaden the understanding of the Great Commission. We want to grow a heart for people in need by encouraging and supporting the mission interest. There are also opportunities to act as a liaison between current missionaries and our home church, as well as to recommend new missionaries/missions for First Baptist to support.
