Mission Opportunities

Missions at Briarlake exists because we believe we are to be actively working toward fulfilling the Great Commission.  In Acts 1:8 Jesus gave us not only the task, but the strategy to fulfill the task.  We are to be deliberate witnesses as we go. Our Jerusalem is our community, our Judea becomes the rest of Georgia, our Samaria is the United States, and the ends of the earth includes every other country of the world.

Briarlake’s Missions Committee exists to encourage and provide multiple opportunities for members to share the Gospel and a touch of God’s love. There are many possibilities for individuals, families, and classes to get involved.

Global Mission Focus Week is an annual event which puts a face to missions, gives opportunities to meet missionaries, and discover places to serve.  A special feature of the weekend is the commitment of members to support the Global Mission Focus Campaign. Check the Upcoming Events page for the dates of Global Mission Focus Week. 

With our giving we support the national and worldwide efforts of the Southern Baptist Convention, the Georgia Baptist Convention, and the Gwinnett Metro Baptist.
