2017 HIGHLIGHTED MINISTRIES
Since its beginning 20 years ago, CHRISTIAN WOMEN’S JOB CORPS® has existed to prepare women for life and employment in a mission context where women are mentored and nurtured. CWJC seeks to minister to women who are living in some form of poverty, be it personal, spiritual, or professional. They come from all walks of life: stay-at-home moms who need to improve their work skills, women coming from a background of physical or emotional abuse, those recovering from addictions, and from a multitude of other places. The women are searching for “something,” and for many, they have no idea what that “something” is.
Caring for the whole person is a demonstration of the Gospel and often opens the door for more effective sharing of the Good News. Project: Start is effectively meeting needs and sharing Christ with the refugee population in the Vickery Meadow area of Dallas. It is estimated that 30,000 refugees live within a three-mile section of north Dallas. Over 30 different languages are spoken. The needs are diverse and so is the community.
It is estimated that nine Southern Baptist churches per week close their doors. In addition, many others are in decline. Healthy, urban churches are needed because more of our state’s population is living in urban centers. It is projected that within the next 25 years over 78% of Texans will live in a region called the Texas Triangle with the corners being Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
Each year over 82,000 international students come to study at colleges and universities around the state. Many of them come from countries where missionaries are not allowed to live or serve. An incredible opportunity to share the Gospel with those who might never hear has landed on our doorsteps. BAPTIST STUDENT MINISTRY [BSM] is working diligently to spread the word of God to these students.
