Reaching Greenville

An estimated 350,000 people who are not connected to any church live in Greenville county.  And an additional 200,000 more people are expected to move here in the next 20 years.   The 100+ GBA churches are working to create access to the gospel and reach their communities.

 

Baptist Campus Ministry

BCM exists to create access to the gospel among the students at Greenville Tech and Furman University.

Blue in the Zoo

Blue in the Zoo is an annual event that shows our love and support for our law enforcement communities.

Deaf Ministry

The deaf population around the world is classified as an Unreached People Group by our International Mission Board.  That can also be said of the deaf population in Greenville.  We create access to the gospel for our deaf communities through:

  • Sponsoring a Day Camp each summer for deaf children and children of deaf adults.
  • Our Deaf Church
  • Additional church-based deaf ministries.
Disaster Relief

We operate a mud-out/flood relief unit.  We work in cooperation with the South Carolina Baptist Convention (SCBC) and American Red Cross when responding to a disaster situation.  Volunteers must be trained to work with a unit.  Training is made available through the SCBC.

Ethnic Diversity

Greenville is listed as one of the top 100 most ethnically diverse areas in the nation.  Our language congregations are constantly seeking ways to reach them.  For a list of our language congregations, click here.

Ministry Kits

Similar to prisoner packets, these basic toiletry supplies meet needs and provide numerous ministry opportunities. They are collected in the Spring of each year. A list of items to include in the kit will be posted on the website.

Prison Ministry

Churches work with the chaplain at Perry Correctional Facility as well as South Carolina Department of Corrections for ministry among the inmates and families. To know more about how your church can be involved in ministry at Perry, contact the chaplain’s office at (864) 243-4712.

We participate in the Christmas Prisoner Packet ministry each year by providing at least 1,500 packets from our churches. A current list of supplies for the packets will be posted on our website.

Westside Crisis Center

The center exist to show the love of Christ through meeting basic human needs. They are staffed by volunteers, and funded through donations.
