Missions

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Our purpose is to passionately lead Brookside Church beyond our doors to help fulfill the Great Commission cross-culturally. We seek to give support to Brookside’s missionaries and educate and motivate the Brookside Family toward passionate involvement in cross-cultural outreach by praying, giving, going, and encouraging.
