Global Missions





From its inception, Browncroft has been a church with a deep missions focus. We as a congregation engage deeply in world missions through our partners around the globe.



We love that God has extended our reach to over 40 countries. The majority of our partners work with least-reached people groups, Bible translation, church leadership training and students



There are so many ways to get involved!

REACH PARTNERSHIPS 



Through The Reach Initiative, we are partnering here in Rochester and around the world to bring the hope and help of Jesus. These highly-focused partnerships let Browncrofters pay particular attention to unreached people groups, being part of the global church, and getting involved right here in Rochester.





WOLOF PARTNERSHIP



For twenty years Browncroft has been creating a network of cross-cultural workers, organizations, volunteers in Rochester, and like-minded churches. Together we are praying to see God work in Senegal, West Africa. Our partnership for the Wolof has as its goals to understand reached and unreached peoples; deepen prayer for global outreach; and help our partners in Senegal establish reproducing Wolof churches. 





PERU PARTNERSHIP



Browncroft is linking as a sister church with the Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Miraflores, Lima, Peru. Browncroft and Miraflores will learn from each other and work on projects together over the next few years, with teams coming from Peru to Rochester and going from here to Lima,. Our goals are to experience global Christinaity; teach and encourage each other; and spread the gospel together.

Dress a Girl Around the World



Providing a dress can change a girl’s destiny. Village pastors report that girls wearing a new dress appear cared-for, which discourages predators. A new dress shows a girl that someone really does care about her! Gather throughout the year as we make dresses for use by our field workers and short term teams around the world. Bring your sewing machine and scissors if you have them. There are also jobs that don’t require sewing!

Each team of dedicated Browncrofters participates in a series of team meetings to ensure that they are prepared, and raises funds together as a team to cover costs. Support a Browncroft mission trip.
