There are so many ways to get involved!
PRAY GIVE GO
Pray Give Go gives the congregation a chance to hear about the work of our local and global partners, follow up from our short term trips, and get involved locally and globally!
Our hope is for each Browncrofter to get more engaged with missions by providing opportunities to pray, give and go.
For decades Browncroft has had a special focus on reaching the Wolof people in Senegal, West Africa. Our partnership for the Wolof aims to understand reached and unreached peoples, deepen prayer for global outreach, and help our partners in Senegal establish reproducing Wolof churches.
Browncroft is a sister church with the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Miraflores, Lima, Peru. Browncroft and Miraflores learn from each other and work on projects together with teams going from here to Lima and teams to come from Peru to Rochester. Our goals are to experience global Christianity, teach and encourage each other, and spread the gospel together.
Our Missions budget provides monthly support and project funds for all our missionary partners. These funds come from gifts to Browncroft specifically designated to Missions. Funds are distributed with approximately 10% going to local missions, 20% to US missions, and 70% to international missions. You can also direct funds to support our Wolof partnership.
You may give to Missions and the Wolof Fund two ways:
Clearly mark your gift for the fund you wish to support in the offering receptacle in our lobby or in our church’s main office.
Credit/Debit Card Online
We would love to walk with you on this exciting path. We can help you vet a missions organization, offer mentoring, and support in other ways as you prepare.
ADOPT A MISSIONARY
Consider making a commitment yourself, with your family, or with your small group to prioritize praying for and encouraging a Browncroft missionary throughout the year.
SHORT TERM MISSION TRIPS
We love sending teams to our trusted missionary partners! Our teams bring their practical skills and spiritual gifts for a week or two to help and encourage them in their long-term work.
Each team of dedicated Browncrofters participates in a series of team meetings to ensure that they are prepared, and raises funds together as a team to cover costs.
In 2023 we are planning missions opportunities in Florida (SIM), South Carolina (OM Warehouse), and Greece (refugees), along with trips serving alongside longtime partners in Senegal and Peru.
