What Is Global Harvest Ministries?
Global Harvest Ministries exists to encourage, equip, enable, and educate the body of Second Baptist Church to engage in God's call to international missions.
Second Baptist Church has a desire to pray, give, and go into the international harvest field for God's glory. To assist in fulfilling this high calling, Global Harvest was launched in 2005.
How Do Missions Volunteers Serve on the Field?
The International Mission Board (IMB) has commissioned full-time missionaries throughout the world, and these missionaries have issued the plea for volunteers to come to the field for short periods of time to work alongside them in accomplishing the task of reaching people with the gospel. Mission teams do a variety of tasks, including evangelism, prayerwalking, VBS, women's ministry, leadership development, medical assistance, youth ministry, and disaster relief.
