Global Missions Focus is an annual event which allows you to participate in local missions (Hands-On Mission Day), gives you opportunities to meet our local mission partners and discover places for you, your family, or your small group to serve (Expo), and provides a special night to pray for our global mission partners and learn about upcoming mission trips (Oasis). 

A special feature of the week is the commitment of members to support the Global Mission Focus Annual Campaign. Our giving goal is $100,000. All monies given as part of the Global Mission Focus campaign are used directly for Briarlake mission efforts. Contributions to this offering, given throughout the year, support the Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong offerings, State Missions, World Hunger, Georgia Baptist Children’s Homes, Developmental Disabilities Ministries, and Briarlake mission trips.
