We were never intended to do life all alone, but rather in the love and company of God and each other.
“The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
~ Frederick Buechner
At JCBC, we believe in a God whose Love is on the move. Always.
That is why JCBC is a missional church as mission and outreach ministries define every area of our life together. As we discern where God is calling each of us, we mobilize that calling through local, regional, and global missions.
Our goal is to organize our ministry and mission in a way that fully equips and empowers individuals to discover their authentic self with their unique God-given gifts and passions.
We long to help each person discern where their “deep gladness” lies, and then, to mobilize those abilities and passions in life-giving ways to meet and serve the “world’s deep hunger.”
JCBC is a part of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and we engage in building missional relationships and supporting CBF’s Global Missions Initiative financially.
Here are a few of the ways we attempt to mobilize our love at JCBC in our community, regionally, and around the world.
Presidio is a town near the Texas- Mexico border that has been identified by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship as one of the poorest regions in the country. JCBC helped pioneer a unique sports camp ministry in Presidio that takes place in January of each year. The next phase of our missional engagement in Presidio will be tutoring programs in the math and science fields.

Our diverse community includes partners all over the globe, and our fellowship supports a wide range of missions and ministries that give people meaningful opportunities to put their faith into action.
