Helping to establish churches in other parts of the world has always been a concern of this church. Normally, about 10% of our annual budget is directed into missionary projects. The church prefers to support a smaller number of missionaries in greater amounts rather than emphasizing the large number of missionaries supported. Currently we financially support missionaries in Italy, Spain, Kenya, Egypt, Uganda, Hungary, Brazil, Haiti, Liberia, Butte Montana, Cambodia, Nicaragua, and Burma. We channel support to our missionaries through Baptist World Mission and other fundamental Baptist missions organizations.
On the first and third Saturdays of every month we will meet at Brentwood Baptist Church at 10:30am, where packets of gospel materials, instructions, and maps to pre-designated areas in Des Plaines will be provided. Going from house to house, hanging these packets on doors, is an efficient, easy way to share the gospel and make our neighbors aware of our ministry. The event takes approximately an hour. If you plan to participate, please fill out the RSVP form below and respond ASAP so we have a fair idea of how many different mapping areas we need to print. https://forms.office.com/r/w3eywMm4Yj.
Brentwood strongly believes in and pursues sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ face to face with people in our community (commonly referred to as “soul winning”). This involves knocking on neighborhood doors to have real encounters with people that will result in changing their eternal destinies. All are welcome to come learn how to share the gospel and partner with others in our church who go out to the surrounding area on Sunday afternoons to knock on doors.
Hand-held Salvation Scripture Signs
Brentwood takes the gospel to the streets, literally! Using a variety of large, hand-held signs with salvation scriptures on them, we go to busy street intersections/commercial areas and hold up these signs for passing pedestrian and vehicle traffic to see. The signs are an attention grabber and have served as a conversation starter to share the gospel. Teams go out on Saturday mornings for an hour or two. If interested in participating, please contact the church office to coordinate with church staff.
Children and Youth
Brentwood has an active program for teens and children of all ages. The Sunday school hour at 9:30 each Sunday morning provides Bible training every week with classes designed for the various age levels. A full nursery program is operated during all church services so parents can worship while their children are cared for in a safe, loving environment.
Children also enjoy the summer Vacation Bible School, children’s worship during the Sunday morning adult worship service, a Bible story time for younger children during the evening message and a children’s program on Wednesday evenings. The teens are involved in service opportunities, teen activities, get-togethers, and a special “Teen Week” each summer. A Sunday school class specially designed for teens meets each Sunday morning at 9:30 during the Sunday school hour. The Academy offers a quality Christian education in an environment that is conducive to learning and godly standards. All ages are also encouraged to participate in the designated camp weeks at Camp Joy in Whitewater, Wisconsin.
Adult Bible Study Classes
Each Sunday morning during the Sunday school hour at 9:30, adults have the opportunity to participate in various Bible studies designed to deepen their understanding of the Scriptures, provide opportunities for Christian growth and encourage a closer daily walk with God.
Equipping Women to Live a Christ-centered Life
The Women’s Ministry at BBC exists to equip women to live and pursue a Godly life through the study and application of God's word. Women will have the opportunity to deepen relationships with other women for friendship, connection, and accountability.

Equipping Men to Live a Christ-centered Life
Men’s Bible Study

Men will have the opportunity to deepen relationships with other men for friendship, connection, and accountability. In this Ministry men not only learn God's word together but support each other outside of church. The men meet once per month on Saturday morning at 9:00 am for an in-depth study of God’s Word led by Pastor Daryl York.
Men’s Prayer meeting
Each Saturday at 7:00 pm our men meet for a short Challege from God's word and prayer for 1 hour. Please contact us for details as the time may change to 8:00 am once per month.
Brentwood Baptist places an emphasis on congregational singing, good choral numbers, God-honoring special music, and instrumental music for all ages. The purpose of the music in our worship service is to glorify God at all times, to prepare hearts for the message from God’s Word, and to direct the believer’s affections and attentions toward God. Our services incorporate traditional hymnology, involving easily sung melodies and words with doctrinal content. We do not endorse or use Contemporary Christian Music in any of our worship services or ministries.
Books for Church Planters
For his ministry in Burma, Pastor Hines has written two small books for Bible college students and native church planters. These books are written in a very plain, simple and brief style in order to be a help to those who have little training and access to other books. These small books are:
The “Handbook of Bible Doctrine” has been translated into Burmese and Telegu (an Indian language), as well as into the Haka Chin, Falam Chin, and Tedim Chin languages of Burma. Future plans include a desire to translate the book into the Jing Pa and Rawang languages of Burma, as well as into the Mandarin language for the Chinese people.
