Reaching the Nations for Christ

Touching Lives Across America and Around the World

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest parts of the earth." Acts 1:8

We have many members or former members of Second Baptist who have been called to the mission field. Please have your classes pray for them or "adopt a missionary" and pray for them once a month.

Mission Trips

Second offers many opportunities to participate in mission trips designed with both single adults and families in mind, within the continental United States, as well as to international destinations. Trips focus on a variety of activities, including Vacation Bible School, community outreach, building projects, church planting and medical and/or dental services. Throughout the year, up-to-date information, trip costs and training dates are posted on this page.

Mission Trips 2020

The trips listed below will provide you with an opportunity to impact our world for Christ. Through the years, we have seen person after person step out of their comfort zone and embrace God's call on their life, never to be the same. This page will be updated frequently regarding trip dates, leadership and trip costs, so please check back often!

After much prayer and with heavy hearts we have decided to postpone all mission trips scheduled through the end of 2020.
