These teams will work with Jardin de Milagros, the Kelly Memorial Food Pantry, Surrendered Ministries, Reach & Relieve, and FBCEP’s Grace Place for a variety of hand-on work projects that will help meet the needs of these ministries and help them better provide their services to the community.


These teams will partner with Child Evangelism Fellowship to coordinate and lead children’s outreach clubs at various locations.


These teams will partner with the Baptist Student Ministry to be equipped and trained on how to have effective Gospel conversations, and will be sent out each day on prayer walks and “street evangelism” in different locations around the city.
