The mission field is all around us. We seek to be a multicultural, multigenerational congregation with growing influence for Jesus Christ in the town of Brunswick, Rensselaer County, across the Capital Region, and around the world.
The Missions Team directly supports 12 mission partners in 8 countries, as well as many others through our denomination. We encourage relationships with our partners and are blessed by numerous visits throughout the year.
We also strive to be a local congregation with a heart for our own community – sharing not just our resources, but also our very lives.
Having a heart for mission means that Brunswick is both a sending and receiving church —willing to send leadership and receive leadership from our mission partners. Mission is a two-way street — we often receive and learn much more than we give and teach.
