Looking to Change the World?
At Huguenot Road Baptist Church, we look to join the Holy Spirit in Missio Dei – God’s Mission in the world. We know that God is present and active throughout creation. Often, we need to be reminded of God’s activity in our midst. Serving our neighbors, be they in Richmond or across the globe, is a humbling and transformative way of being surprised by God’s ongoing mission! Through mission partnerships, HRBC provides opportunities throughout the year to join with God in God’s mission. In the process, you never know who you might encounter and how God will touch your life and the life of others!
HRBC recognizes that God has called us to serve our families, our neighbors, our communities, and the people that live beyond our comfort zones. Using Acts 1:8 as a guide, we have created three mission teams to provide a holistic mission strategy for church members to plug into.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Our Jerusalem Team serves our own congregation through opportunities to grow closer to one another in fellowship, ministry to college students while away at school, homebound ministry and bereavement.
Our Judea Team serves the varied people of Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia through feeding the homeless, serving as mentors at local public schools, offering important health services at one our Clinics, offering hospitality as a Caritas site, and finding ways to build lasting relationships with our varied communities in RVA.
Our Ends of the Earth Team serves beyond our state’s borders through strategic partnerships with missionaries who live and serve in different cultures than our own. We have built close ties with these missionaries and the people they serve with in places like eastern Kentucky; Charlotte, NC; Kosice, Slovakia; Macau, China; and Palembang, Indonesia.
