Shelby Mission Camp
The goal of the Shelby Mission Camp is to involve churches (men, women and youth) in missions. As we serve together, using our God given skills, God will open doors for many spiritual needs to be met. Construction, and other projects are planned well in advance of your mission trip. In preparation, the camp director will meet with local churches, associations, and community leaders. Evangelistic opportunities such as Backyard Bible Schools, Sport Camps and other community ministries can also be set up by the camp director if the team desires. Eddie and Martha Williams serve as our mission camp coordinator. They are looking forward with great anticipation to serving with thousands of you who want to come on missions to Shelby area and help build God's Kingdom! Please come join us!

Shelby Mission Camp has two new metals buildings on 12 acres of land with another 30 acres for future development plans. We have one building which is used to house, feed and sleep 200 mission volunteers per day. The other building is used to store buildings materials and tools. The dedication of the Shelby camp was on April 29, 2012.
The Shelby camp hosts volunteers who have come from NC and surrounding states as they complete a wide variety of mission projects including wheel chair ramps, roof repairs, painting, mowing, cleaning yards, and planting grass. We also have groups doing Backyard Bible Clubs, sport camps and harvesting potatoes planted here at the mission camp to help those in need.
We have a wide variety of mission project needs in the area. You are needed and this is a great place to stay and work. Please contact the NC Baptist Men's office to
