Missions Opportunities

Brookwood is committed to impacting the world beyond the walls of our building. We seek to share the love of Christ through community, state, national, and international ministries.
We want to facilitate and enable God's people to be obedient to our Great Commission task to reach the world with the love of Christ. Our desire and our goal is "to guide everyone we meet to a life centered in Christ."

We want to provide all people an opportunity to hear, understand, and respond to the gospel in their own cultural context. We have embraced the Acts 1:8 challenge to be Christ's witnesses throughout the world.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will by my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
Acts 1:8 (HCSB)

Brookwood commits itself to a comprehensive missions involvement in its community (its Jerusalem), state (its Judea), continent (its Samaria), and the world (the ends of the earth). We support the following ministries both financially and through volunteer participation. For more information on these ministries please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS

Cambodia

He will not be hosting groups for at least a couple of years. Pray that he will be able to translate the scriptures clearly during this endeavor.

Ethiopia
Brookwood works in Ethiopia to meet needs in cooperation with our workers on the ground there. Call Donny, Missions/Influence Minister, at the church for more information.

Honduras Mission Trip [Evangelism, Bible Clubs]
Trip Dates: July 14-July 20
Trip Leader: Donny Lee
Location: Tegucigalpa, Honduras and Villages outside of Tegucigalpa

Level 1 Starter: Travel by school bus and vehicles to ministry locations. Stay in mission house with 3 bathrooms/showers; extra wide bunk beds; living room with wi-fi, TV, and ping pong table; very nice dining area; no AC, fans only. Meals cooked for us by Ignite mission staff and eat in some restaurants. Ministry is done in churches, schools, and outdoors. 

Brookwood works with Sam and Peggy Feazel of Ignite Missions in Honduras to provide volunteers, supplies, and financial support to minister to the people of Honduras. In July 2012 we had three teams- a Kid’s Bible Club team, a Women’s Retreat team, and an Eye Glass Clinic team. The Kid’s Bible Club team went to the two villages each day. In the morning they went to the village of Trojes and the afternoon to the village of Corillitos. We did music, Bible story, crafts, recreation, and illusions with them each day. The Kid’s team had 41 kids pray to receive Christ. The Women’s Retreat team worked at the church in Corillitos each day teaching on the Fruit of the Spirit. The retreat was a great blessing to the women of three villages who attended. They never get the special treatment and encouragement through God’s word the way they did during this special week in their lives. Several of them said that this was the best week in their lives. All but one of the women were Christians and 48 of them made rededications of their lives to Christ. Their was one that gave her life to Christ for the first time. The Eye Clinic was held in four different villages and each person that came through was counseled by one of Ignite Mission’s team pastors. Many people were fitted with glasses and are now able to read. Their were 13 people who received Christ as their Savior through this great ministry. We thank all of those who helped send us, provide materials for ministry and who prayed for us along the way. During the week there was a total of 55 salvations and 48 rededications.  God truly blessed.


Mexico Mission Trip
Trip Dates: June 28-July 5
Location: Cordoba, Mexico and Villages in Southern Mexico

In-Town Group Level 1 Starter: Travel by bus and vehicles to ministry locations. Stay in apartments with bathrooms/showers and bunk beds. No AC, only fans. Meals cooked by the MITC staff. No hiking or camping. Ministry is done in churches or houses.
Outback Group Level 2 Physical Active: Travel by bus and vehicles to ministry locations. Stay in churches on concrete floors with a pad, sleeping bag, and mosquito net or tent. Also, stay in some homes on beds at times. No AC, only fans. Sometimes hiking involved. Meals cooked by families in the villages. Bathing can be in a shower, by bucket or in a river. Bathrooms can be indoor or an outhouse. Ministry is done in churches or houses.

In the Summer of 2012 the number of short-term missionaries that traveled to Mexico was 14: 7 Brookwood members, 2 Woodridge members, 2 from Kansas, 2 from Tyler, and 1 from Greenwood. The MITC Team had 7 people and the Outback Team had 7 people.  The MITC team went out from Cordoba each day to 5 different villages and saw around 700 to 800 people in their medical clinics for the week.  The Outback Team went to four villages and saw around 400 people for the week in their medical clinics.  While we did the clinics, the MITC students and pastors of churches preached and shared the gospel one on one with those who were waiting to see the doctors.
Donny also shared the gospel with the kids through the use of balloon sculptures, juggling and illusions. The doctors and those working in the clinics were able to pray with many of the patients who came in with physical needs; but who also had spiritual needs. It was a wonderful sight to see doctors, interpreters, and other team members kneeling with a patient or a family and praying for their needs. The pastors were so grateful that someone would come to their village to help them reach people for Christ by meeting physical needs. It opened doors for them with people in their villages that may have taken years to open otherwise.

Zimbabwe Evangelism/Discipleship and possibly Medical Trips:
These teams’ ministry  opportunities include: medical, evangelism, discipleship, and just loving on people. You can choose May 24-June1; May 31-June 8; or June 21-29 to go on one of these missions. For more information, see Donny or go to Extreme Missionary Adventures.


There will be informational meetings on these trips for those who may be interested. Save the trip dates on your calendar now and begin praying and asking God what He wants you to do in 2014.

How Do I Get A Passport?
Everyone who plans to go on an international mission trip must have a U.S. passport. It takes a few weeks to receive your passport after making application for one; therefore, it is advantageous for anyone who plans to travel out of the U.S. in the future to go ahead an apply for a passport. A passport is good for 5 years if you are 17 years of age or younger, and for those 18 years of age or older it is good for 10 years. Click here to find all the information you need on how to apply for a new passport or reapply for one.
