Sharing the Gospel in Uganda. Haiti. Guatemala. Los Angeles. Baltimore. India. Wisconsin. North Africa. Greece.

Like many of the ministries of Gardendale First Baptist Church, our Missions Ministry is multifaceted. With our giving, we support the national and worldwide efforts of the Southern Baptist Convention, the Alabama Baptist State Convention and the North Jefferson Baptist Association. We believe and act upon the belief that missions is more than giving money.

We put feet to our prayers through:

  • Twelve to fifteen mission trips each year, undertaking projects such as construction, Vacation Bible School, water wells, seed to feed, food bags and evangelism.

  • Maintaining a food bank to assist those in our community in need.

  • Operation Christmas Child, providing Christmas gifts through Samaritan's Purse to children around the world.

  • Assisting with Jimmie Hale Mission Men's Center, Jessie's Place, Royal Pines and Mission Possible Bargain Center.

  • Prison Fellowship, which ministers to prisoners, ex-prisoners and victims.
