Community Missions
Every Person • Every Family • Every Group


The FBCSA family mobilized to live out the Gospel in this city through rhythms of everyday life, bringing healing and hope through the power of the Gospel in tangible ways.

Projects and programs are not the mission; making disciples of a PEOPLE who live in a particular PLACE is the mission.

IT IS INTENTIONAL. IT IS LONG TERM. IT IS INVESTED.

REGULAR PEOPLE LIVING ORDINARY LIVES WITH GREAT GOSPEL INTENTIONALITY.

JOIN THE CONVERSATION

  • “What would Gospel Intentionality look like for my family?”

  • “How do I get my small group engaged with this mission?”
  • “How do I live out my Gospel identity as Jesus commands?”
