Missions at Second
Missions has been the heartbeat of the people of Second Baptist Church for many years. Taking the Gospel to those who have not had the opportunity to hear has made our church a sending agency literally to the ends of the earth. We have opportunities including building projects, medical, evangelism, leadership training, block parties/Backyard Bible Clubs, justice ministries, and more.
We love to partner with the many agencies and groups that serve Springfield. These opportunities equip our people to become servant leaders in their homes, work, and free time. Opportunities are available to serve through these partnerships for individuals and groups of all ages and abilities, on a one-time or on-going basis.
Student World Impact
Student World Impact (SWI) is a missions program for children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade. SWI meets on Wednesdays, from 5:30-7:00 PM during the school year. The purpose of SWI is to help children learn what it means for them to live their lives as missionaries wherever they are. This is done by sharing missionary and Bible stories, playing games, learning Bible verses, participating in mission’s projects, and hearing guest speakers. The children learn about local, state and international people who serve Jesus as missionaries.
World Missions Conference
Philippians 3:13-14 // Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching FORWARD to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
In 2017, we are moving FORWARD as individuals and as a church body!
If you are interested in missions opportunities, from right here in Springfield
to around the globe, we have something for you!
