Go. Make a Difference.

Woodland has cultivated long term partnerships with Cooperative Baptist missions and churches in Laredo, TX and Skopje, Macedonia. Each year we send missionary teams to these locations, and seek to help the field personnel on the ground, while learning from the cultures of the areas. At Woodland, we do not seek to impose our culture or “fix” people, but rather partner with the indigenous work God is already doing to build the Kingdom here on earth. Will you join us?

Laredo

Our sister congregation, Iglesia Bautista Emanuel in Laredo has vital ministries throughout the city and over the border into Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Each year we go to Laredo to help Emanuel with their Christmas program, and send a mission team to Laredo for a week each summer to assist with Vacation Bible School, construction programs, ESL classes, and more. Members from Emanuel then come up to San Antonio yearly to help us build a Habitat for Humanity home. We also often join forces for experiences such as youth camp and Disciple now.
Next experience with Emanuel: Habitat for Humanity Build
Other opportunities:

  • Christmas in the Bario (Date TBA)
  • Summer Mission Pilgrimage, Summer 2018

Macedonia

For the last few years, we have been partnering with Cooperative Baptist Field Personnel Jeff and Alica Lee of Skopje, Macedonia. Each year we take a mission team to Macedonia to help Jeff and Alicia with their agricultural initiatives, ministry to those with disabilities, and ministry to children. In addition, our children and youth have participated in learning about life in Macedonia and given generously to the work of the Lees.
Next experience in Macedonia: May 2018

Long Term Missionaries

In addition to involving our members in short term mission experiences, we sponsor several Cooperative Baptist Field Personnel financially. Each year we ask our members to give generously to the CBF Offering for Global Missions in December, to support the long term presence of our missionaries, but we also give to individual personnel monthly in an attempt to support the cost of their ministry programs.
