GABC South Missions

At GABC South, we believe that being involved in the mission of the church is a daily responsibility for each member. Every member is a minister, and every member's daily interactions is his or her mission field. In addition to that, we also seek to be involved in local, state, national and international mission efforts. Take a look at a few of the efforts we have been involved in.

It is our desire to be Jesus' hands and feet, helping not only our members and our community, but also looking in the future at global opportunities, all for the glory to our Lord!

  • Portland, Oregon

    In August, we will be traveling to work with Pathway Church as they launch their new Sandy, OR campus. Much like Green Acres South's story, Orient Drive Baptist Church in Sandy gave their property to Pathway Church and said "Help us become a vibrant church again!" Pathway will be launching the new campus in August, and GABC is sending five teams up to OR to help them prepare for the launch. Dustin will be leading GABC South's team to help with outreach in August, promoting the launch in September. If you are interested in this trip, please contact Dustin.

Ministries & Partnerships
