Taking the good news to the world of God’s desire to have a personal relationship with each of us is primary at South Reno Baptist Church (SRBC). We want to be part of reaching our community, state, nation, and the entire world with His message of love, grace and redemption. Everyone at SRBC is encouraged to be involved in all of our mission efforts by being a Player (Volunteer), Prayer (Pray) &/or a Payer (Finance) in being “On Mission With God”!

In addition to inviting friends and neighbors to church, South Reno members are involved in a wide variety of local mission efforts. There is a place for everyone to serve.
As just a small sample of activities: our Youth have led Bible School activities in local neighborhoods; we conduct children’s programs and tutoring in less advantaged areas; knit and crocheted items are made for local hospitals and the homeless; coffee, donuts, and clothing items are shared with the unemployed who gather at Galletti Way. There are several dozen South Reno Baptist Church groups reaching out on a local level.

South Reno Baptist Church partners with other Southern Baptist Churches in need throughout the State of Nevada.
Youth and adult crews repaired and painted the Round Mountain parsonage and installed new appliances.
Also, SRBC teams have assisted with modular home repair and refurbished Yomba Baptist Church on the Shoshone Indian Reservation at Yomba. In September 2018, members led by Rixey Jenkins constructed much needed decking. All work at the parsonage was done to support efforts in attracting God’s pastor and making it livable!

Mission projects such as one where South Reno Baptist Church Team traveled to one of the most economically depressed counties in our country, in Kentucky, to staff a local church’s Vacation Bible School and free community restaurant, assist with an adult day-care facility, provide quarters and soap at the county laundromat as they shared Christ, rebuild and repair damaged homes, reach out to the unsaved, and worship with local believers. We pray and seek for opportunities to join together in meeting needs across our blessed United States of America.
In addition to supporting the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program, which underwrites missions/missionaries worldwide, South Reno Baptist Church has consistently sent medical and/or Vacation Bible School/outreach teams to Cambodia, Peru, Venezuela, Uganda, and Costa Rica since 2006. Opportunities are available to those seeking to follow Jesus' command to share His love and promise.
CAMBODIA: Recently, our medical team ministered in Cambodia from Jan 5 -> 15, 2019. The team was made up of 5 medical personnel and 6 evangelism/support staff (check out video/photos at the Spot on Missions table). God blessed the team as they were able to reach out to 124 villagers and witnessed 6 believers share their testimonies thru baptism. Planning is currently underway to have 2 medical missions trips in March and November of each year, beginning 2020, which will greatly enhance the villagers well being to carry out His work. Contact Mirio Whitley ( ) for more info.
PAKISTAN: We also are supporting an IMB missionary family in Pakistan and will be exploring the possibility of sending a small team to that region in 2020 to assist in their ministry. Please pray for God’s will as we plan for our further involvement in His work in Pakistan. To find out more, ask Keith Brown ( )
PERU: We currently have an ongoing relationship with our IMB missionaries in Peru. We have been sending teams to Peru since 2009 and are currently planning to help the missionaries evangelize during the Pan Am games in August of 2019. We would like to continually send small teams (4-6 people) to Peru every 4-6 months if possible. For those of you interested in and are being led to participate in His work in Peru, contact Keith Brown ( )
VIETNAM: Work is underway to find ways to open doors and reach out in this new missions field. One approach being pursued is the "Teaching English as Second Language" project. For those of you who are curious about this missions opportunity, contact Mirio Whitley ( ).
