The following opportunities are available:
- Focus Gathering:
Experience the richness of God’s love as we gather together to encourage one another in the faith and hear stories about how God is working in the lives of our church family, both here and abroad. We meet at 5pm in Room FC210 the first Sunday of each month September through May.
- Service Trips:
We send teams around the world on short-term trips, each focusing on identifying, developing and initiating creative means to impact another community with the gospel of Christ.

Periodic classes and workshops will equip you to effectively share your faith, understand how to witness to people of other religions, and develop an apologetic defense of the Christian faith.
- Global Staff Support:
Our global staff are those who have been led by God and sent by Colonial Baptist Church to live and serve in another part of the world. Through financial and prayer support, as well as encouragement, hospitality, and meeting specific family and ministry needs, we join these servants in their service.

Our global partners are individuals, and organizations with whom we have developed relationships to help us fulfill a specific ministry objective.

Because we're all in this together, we host regular events designed to encourage, educate and equip the church on issues related to the needs of the world and what God is doing to meet those needs.

Praying for our Global Staff and Global Partners is the focus of the Prayer Foundation. This team gathers regularly to serve these ministers and their ministries through intercessory prayer. Contact us if you are interested in joining!
