Community Outreach  |  Global Missions


Southern Baptists have been making evangelism a global priority since 1845. Following the example of the early church in Acts 8, First Baptist Raytown continues to increase its involvement in missions while working to spread the gospel down the street, across the country and around the globe.

Are missions and evangelism a global priority for you? Listed below are upcoming missions and evangelism opportunities. Get plugged in by praying, going and giving.


Please remember to pray for our adopted missionaries: Chuck and Amy Barbour; Brock and Jeanne Cummins, serving in the Caribbean Basin; David and Robin Stow, serving in Eastern Africa; Kim and Tara Khosravipour, serving in the Middle East; Russell and Carol Barr, serving Paris, France; Helmer and Shannon Jensen, serving in South Africa; Edgar and Sara Salguero, serving at Casa Bernabé Guatemala.

In addition, pray for the students' annual missions trips, summer missions, and other individuals whom God will call this year to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

For more information on these trips, contact the church's missions coordinator, Carmen Kraus at 816-268-1526 ckraus@firstbaptistraytown.com.
