missions

The Brook supports local, regional and global mission efforts through prayer, financial support, and outreach projects. Our strategy is not only to adopt missionaries and comprehensively support their work, but we consider it part of our call as followers of Christ to each be On Mission in our daily lives.


Missions is not just something we do — it is a part of who we are.

Innovative Mission Opportunities

It is our privilege to partner with IMO as they share Jesus with those who have never heard His name. Places like Nepal are being impacted as local pastors, evangelists, and missionaries are equipped to disciple new believers who then also become missionaries to the unreached.

International Cultural Exchange

ICX mobilizes and equips volunteers to build relationships with international students in the Lone Star College system. There are over 3000 students from 100 different countries. Typically, 70% of international students never even get invited into an American home, but we want to change that.
