Ministry Partners


As a congregation, it is our joy to support our brothers and sisters working to spread the Gospel and to love and serve God’s people around the world. Teams of workers have gone out from our church on short-term missions trips to Guatemala, Moldova, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. Please visit each missionary’s web site for more information about the work that they do.

Hope for Tomorrow

Hope for Tomorrow Guatemala, Inc. is a Christian mission organization that serves in the area around Teculutàn in the state of Zacapa, Guatemala. We have partnered with local Pastor Noè Gìron and his wife Glenda to bring physical and spiritual assistance to the people of Guatemala. Short term mission teams work alongside Guatemalan nationals and other mission groups to construct churches, drill fresh-water wells, provide medical care, feed the hungry, build needed facilities (orphanages, churches, homes, medical clinics) and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.We strive to encourage and raise up Guatemalan ministries to be self-sustaining. South Woodstock Baptist Church has sent short-term missions teams of adults and youth to Guatemala since 2013. Read our stories on our team  Facebook page.

Open Doors International

Open Doors originated in 1955, when a young Dutchman started smuggling Bibles to the persecuted Christians in Communist Europe. He became known as Brother Andrew  and his work led to more than six decades of support for the persecuted church worldwide. We are a global membership organisation with 25 national bases. We share one mission, to support persecuted Christians worldwide and strengthen what remains. 

Global Christian Relief 

Global Christian Relief (formally Open Doors) stands with persecuted Christians all over the world, providing whatever it takes to live for Jesus—emergency relief, Bibles, discipleship, food aid, job training and much more. Global Christian Relief equips persecuted Christians in more than 60 countries through programs like Bible & Gospel Development, Women & Children Advancement and Christian Community Restoration.
