The purpose of the Agricultural Ministry is to help Christians share the love of Jesus by becoming involved in missions that address poverty and hunger wherever they exist.
Hands-On Field Days
Each spring, hands-on field days are held at the Baptists on Mission mission camps (Red Springs and Shelby) on a rotating basis. These field days feature demonstrations on farming and livestock techniques, as well as a speaker and children's progam.
Our Agricultural Missions Team works with churches to encourage the establishment of "community gardens" that can be used to develop relationships with those living around the church. This gives people an opportunity to work in the garden and to share the harvest of fresh vegetables in the name of Christ.

Short Term Mission Trips
The Agricultural Missions Team encourages individuals who have an interest in agriculture to participate in short-term mission trips to help missionaries and national leaders with water and food production projects while sharing their faith. Past trips have included those to Honduras, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and more. Check below for opportunities to serve on a short-term ag mission trip.
