Missions

We want to help every member of Shandon live in full obedience to the Great Commission and their unique roles in it.

Shandon Baptist Missions 1

Make. Mature. Multiply.


"Go, therefore, and make disciples . . ." wherever you are! We want to equip and encourage you to share your faith with confidence, serve for the sake of the gospel, and love like Jesus does. Here at home or around the world, we'd love to help you discover and pursue your role in God's global mission.
