Mission Initiatives

CBF prioritizes eight mission initiatives focused on ministry to “the least of these.”  For more information on these, contact Field Coordinator Rick Bennett.

Disaster Response Ministries
Although not a disaster relief organization, CBF responds when major disasters strike through its own resources or partner organizations. CBF’s model for response ministry is to be a long-term presence, helping communities recover and rebuild.

Internationals Ministries
CBF field personnel, churches and partners are involved in ministries to internationals - refugees, immigrants, students. They help to meet physical, emotional and spiritual needs, as newcomers search for a place of belonging.

Church Starts & Faith Sharing Ministries
From a Cowboy church in Texas to a church for professionals in  China, CBF field personnel and partners are supporting new church starts. Training and partnerships provide resources for the lay leaders and pastors leading these new churches.

Justice & Peacemaking Ministries
Fellowship Baptists serve as advocates for social justice and religious freedom. They minister to those who are persecuted for their faith and work to address human trafficking, genocide, women’s rights, child labor and reconciliation.

Healthcare Ministries
Seeking to be the presence of Christ by offering spiritual and physical healing, Fellowship Baptists are ministering among those affected by HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases.
