Global Ministry Conference


What an amazing Global Ministry Conference! Our hearts are filled with gratitude for all our Lord accomplished during Briarwood’s 57th annual Global Ministries Conference. Phil Tuttle effectively challenged us from God’s Word. We were so encouraged as we heard 26 of our missionaries give updates on how our Lord is at work around the world. What a joy to hear and see the tangible fruit of your sacrificial giving.

Faith Promise Update: God has done it again! He did far more abundantly than we asked or even imagined.  We praise the Lord for the 57th Annual Global Ministries Conference “Gifted to Serve.” Briarwood Church has responded to God’s leading in significant ways. The congregation was challenged on the final Sunday of the Missions Conference to prayerfully make pledges before the Lord. The final totals have been recorded and in addition to the financial pledges, the pledge cards indicated these results:  36 members interested in joining the Global Ministries Team, 8 members interested in exploring Cross-Cultural Mission Service, and, 7 members signed up to work with International Students. The Global Missions Team prioritized the Hallelujah Goal at $2,658,372.00; however, the Faith Promise pledges reached an all-time high coming in at $2,843,237.24. We are grateful for a church with such a huge heart for Global Missions. Please pray that our Lord will provide these funds and guide us in wise stewardship this year!
