From its inception, Browncroft has been a church with a deep missions focus. The congregation’s engagement in world missions is reflected by its support of missionaries with funds, with prayer, and with personnel.
Currently our missionaries extend our reach to over 40 countries around the world. The majority of our partners work with least-reached people groups, Bible translation, students or church leadership development.

Believing that God’s heart longs to extend His Kingdom to all nations, Browncroft has entered into a long-term partnership to help form the Church among the Wolof people of Senegal. We have established links with other churches, agencies, missionaries and organizations with similar goals, and involve the congregation through prayer, giving, strategizing, training and going. To learn more about the Wolof, click here.

Adopt a Missionary
Adopting a missionary could mean a commitment to pray for that missionary through the year, or to support them financially. We’d love for you, your family or your small group to take a look through our missionaries and select one you’d commit to. To find out more, click here.
Ladies Missionary Fellowship
The Missionary Fellowship groups provide a way for women to be more directly involved in Browncroft missions. We have two Missionary Fellowship groups, which meet monthly. At the heart of each meeting are prayer, correspondence and service projects to serve our supported missionaries.
Meets at Browncroft the first Thursday of the month at 11:30 am.
Meets the first Tuesday evening of the month in homes. Contact the Missions Office for the location of the next meeting.
Dress a Girl Around the World
Providing a dress can change a girl’s destiny. Village pastors report that girls wearing a new dress appear cared-for, which discourages predators. Join us periodically throughout the year as we gather to make dresses to be used by our partners and short term teams for girls in need around the world.
Kit-Making Event: 4-8 pm, Monday, March 13 in A12
Sewing Event: 9:30 am-2:30 pm, Saturday, April 29 in the Fellowship Hall
We would love to walk with you on your path into long-term service in missions. We can help you vet an organization, assist with your preparation and offer mentoring and other kinds of support.Questions about trips? Email us!
