How does Brentwood use its donations?

Your donations make it possible for us to offer a number of programs and initiatives in the heart of the Bible Belt that are incredibly difficult to find, including:

  • A strong and faithful public voice that stands for justice, dignity and equity for all people;
  • Community and belonging for those who’ve often felt unwelcome in church and/or society;
  • Care and support for people in times of struggle and crisis;
  • Indispensable programs for children and youth that let every participant experience belonging and know they are loved beyond their wildest imagination;
  • In-depth spiritual formation opportunities that help participants make sense of life and faith in a way that values both the mind and the heart;
  • Worship gatherings that celebrate the beauty and wonder of Christ’s unconditional love and that carry the capacity to transform every day thought and practice;
  • Justice initiatives that don’t simply seek to provide a band-aid to those in need, but try to change the systems and structures that lead people to be in need in the first place;
  • Organizational opportunities for faith-based people in the area to mobilize together to work for social justice;
  • And much, much more.

All of this takes a tremendous amount of time and resources, and these life-giving ministries are only possible because of your financial support.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity; by supporting Brentwood Christian Church you are helping people experience community, justice, and love.
