The New Light Baptist Church's Missions department is the community outreach arm of our church. Over our five-year history, under the leadership of Pastor Charmaine DaCosta, the mission's department has developed an international ministry as we forged a relationship with several communities in Haiti where we support over 30 elementary school students annually. We have also developed a powerful music ministry in Spain, spreading the gospel in song. This year, missionary Tera White will participate in the World Race, an 11 month, 11 country mission trip that takes her to communities in the far reaches of the earth to bring the gospel.
The missions department also partners with Habitat for Humanity in the fight against homelessness by volunteering, advocating and educating around the subject of affordable housing in New York. We support and volunteer with New York City Relief Bus to help feed those experiencing food insecurity; and, our S.A.V.E.D ministry partners with Iris House to provide HIV and AIDS education and testing.
Most recently, the mission's department has started an awareness campaign around the issue of mental health education.
