The Garden, in many ways, is a local mission in Baltimore City. We do not see ourselves as mere residents, but as missionaries among neighbors who need the Gospel. To accomplish our mission, we seek to equip our members through the regular ministries of the church. A number of members have intentionally moved into the neighborhood for this purpose. It's our desire that every member fulfills the Great Commission as they hang out on stoops, invite neighbors to dinner, work jobs, and discover creative opportunities to promote the Gospel.
Additionally, we come together on mission in various ways in Baltimore City. We help plant new churches, throw block parties, run an arts program at our local school, and we seek to support and encourage local campus ministries.
If you desire to serve locally, please email us and let us know. We would love to help connect and equip you.
Through the work of various mission agencies and individuals, we seek to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. The good news of Jesus is a message for the globe so that people everywhere may know salvation.
Our global missions strategy is two-fold: Send and Give. Send: In recent years, various members have been sent across the globe to places including China, the Middle East, and South America. Give: Through the cooperative program of the Southern Baptist Convention, we support the work of the International Mission Board.
The Urban Leader Intern Program exists to raise up the next generation of leaders for the church and home through equipping men from the city, for the city. The internship is a full-time, five month program which trains young men in theology, in practical ministry, and personal growth.
If you are interested in applying for the internship, or supporting the program in any capacity, please email Joel Kurz.
