We are excited about our liaisons for our local partnerships this year. These FBC Members have a wealth of knowledge about each of our partnerships as they have already been serving with these ministries. Our liaisons will be a great resource for our members. If you have any questions or if you want to find out how to get involved with these local ministries, please contact our liaisons.

Crossroads Ministries is a place of refuge and restoration for women in need of help and guidance as they are getting their lives back together. These women often come from prison and have nowhere else to go. Some need a fresh start after a drug addiction or an abusive relationship. Every case is unique, and each woman is in a time of transition and healing.

Madison County Prayer Walking Ministry
First Baptist Madison started a Prayer Walking Ministry about 12-14 years ago. This ministry is allowing us the opportunity to go into every school in Madison County and pray through the hallways as school is in session. This ministry takes place on the 2nd and 4th weeks of each month and it only takes about 30 minutes at a school. Teachers and students have begun to recognize our volunteers and form a bond. We need more volunteers every month.

Iglesia de Dios Manantial de Vida
As we have traveled abroad to many foreign lands and Spanish speaking countries, it has opened our eyes and hearts to a variety of Spanish speaking churches. With this, the Lord has placed on our hearts a Spanish speaking church in Madison County that we are partnering with for 2020. We are excited to share that Church of God Manantial de Vida will be a new local partnership for First Baptist Madison. Please contact our Missions Office if you are interested in helping start English as a Second Language (ESL) Ministry at this church.
