Missions

Sao Luis FB SAO LUIS MISSION TEAM are now our partners in church planting evangelism.  In July, 2017 we reached formal agreement with the Northside Church of Christ in San Antonio to join in providing spiritual encouragment and financial support to three families who will move to Sao Luis in December of 2017. Additional details for these three families (Dye, Hll, Gibbins) will be found at https://www.saoluisteam.org.  The most recent updates regarding their pre-departure activities are located on their Facebook page at Sao Luis Team.

 


We have had the wonderful opportunity to know Christ Jesus and we now seek to make him known to others. We take seriously our call to speak the gospel internationally. This is a priority for Brentwood Oaks. Today we are active in local missions, such as FriendSpeak and World Bible School. Every Sunday a Bible class is held with those for whom English is a second language. Contact Paul Lennous for information about this class.  We support Christian workers in Guatemala through our association with Health Talents International. We share in ministry with Meagan Hawley who serve at The Haven located on Namwianga Mission, Kalomo, Zambia.  We encourage BOCC members to participate in short-term mission trips, taking the good news of what God has done in Christ to people to need to hear it.  

For all of the contacts mentioned on this page, login to access the member directory or send a note to the office.

World Bible School

WBS is widely known throughout Churches of Christ as a leader in correspondence course driven Bible study. Through the mailing of printed lessons as well as a strong Internet presence, BOCC teachers are able to share in a growing ministry which teaches the Good News to hundreds of thousands of eager students each year. Contact Hugh Morgan for additional information.


FriendSpeakfriendspeak session

FriendSpeak reaches out to our international neighbors with the English language, friendship, and the Word of God. Unlike traditional English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classes, FriendSpeak is conducted in a one-to-one setting with the emphasis on relationships and meaningful conversation. Christians meet weekly with their international readers to help them practice their English, discussing the stories of the Gospels from easy-to-read workbooks. In this context, language skills improve, friendships are born, and faith is discussed openly. To join Brentwood Oaks' FriendSpeak ministry, contact Tammy Driskell.


 Guatemalan churchGuatemala

In 1970 Brentwood Oaks sent four families to preach the Good News to the Mayan people of the Mid-western Highlands. Currently we provide support to Baldimar Ruiz as he manages the evangelistic outreach of Health Talents International in Southwestern Coastal Region of Guatemala. Ten new congregations have been established in recent years. We provide support for leadership training seminars which improve the Biblical understanding of preachers from Central America. The ABC program supports children in Christian families, helping to ensure that they remain in school and active in church. This ministry seeks to provide a physically healthy and biblically literate population for the next generation of the church in Guatemala. Linda King can tell you more.
