Evangelism and Missions Initiative – California Southern Baptist Convention

Evangelism and Missions Initiative

The Evangelism and Missions team exists to equip churches to be on mission beyond the walls of their buildings by resourcing the vision of the local church. There are 2,405 Southern Baptist churches tasked with reaching 39 million people in California with the gospel.  We are here to resource, equip, and encourage churches and leaders to advance their strategic plan to reach their communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Engaging California Southern Baptists in women’s ministry and missions, disaster relief, and mobilization for state, national and international mission opportunities are ministry resources offered to member congregations. Through leadership development, skill training, local church ministry development, and deployment of volunteers for mission opportunities, the Evangelism & Mission Initiatives Team assists congregations to move beyond the walls of their church into worldwide mission fields.
