There is no greater mission on earth than God’s Great Commission. It is the foundation of evangelism and the force that propels us into cross-cultural work. It’s the redemptive purpose that challenges us to put our faith into action, and it’s the shower of forgiveness flowing from the Father that reveals how we can still be used for His glory. Scroll down to find out how you can get involved in UBC missions today.



PRAY - Commit to pray for each of these mission opportunities, and ask God to reveal how He wants you to get involved in His work.


GIVE - Commit to give to the UBC Great Commission Offering to support missions next door and around the world.


GO - Commit to actively participate in missions this year. It will change your life!


Food Pantry

Every third Tuesday of the month, the UBC food pantry hands out food to 30 families in need. This ministry seeks to reach and share the love of Christ with those in our own community. Contact Jerry Phillips or the church office to volunteer today.

International Student Outreach

Currently there are over 250 international students who come from all over the world to study at UNA. We have an opportunity to share the love of Christ with these students while they are here in hopes that they would then take the Gospel back to their families when they return home. Simply “adopting” a student and spending time with them on a monthly basis provides an easy way to help the students experience our culture and learn about our faith. Contact us to find out how you can adopt a student today.

In Parnership with Room In The Inn of the Shoals, we work to provide radical hospitality through food and shelter to the homeless during the winter months. This ministry is primarily organized through our Sunday School Ministry. If you are not involved in a Sunday School class, contact us for more information and get plugged in today.

Other opportunities to serve locally come available throughout the year, such as providing a meal at the Community Soup Kitchen, local prayer walks and outreach, our annual Harvest Night during the Halloween season and Megga Easter Egg Hunt.

God Cares Ministries

Each year around the beginning of February, UBC partners with God Cares Ministries to staff a Christian float for parades in Gautier and Waveland, MS. If you can smile and handout Bibles, tracts and stickers, you are qualified. Contact us for information about our next trip.

More opportunities to serve across the United States are available through the North American Mission Board (NAMB). NAMB assists churches with evangelistic church planting strategy, the identification and training of missionaries, chaplains and church planters through the Send Network, and helps churches impact their communities through Send Relief. NAMB supports 5,262 missionaries throughout North America from church planters to university missionaries. 15% of UBC's Great Commission Offering directly supports NAMB missionaries.

Leaders Building Leaders

One of our members, Larry Wright, serves as the Missions Director of Leaders Building Leaders. This ministry strives to build leaders with a passion for the Great Commission. In 2018 LBL will serve in Cuba, Guatemala, Haiti, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Malawi. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Larry Wright or the church office.
