Missions

Waterbrook Bible Fellowship was founded with a commitment to keep missions a primary value and focus of the church.  As part of that commitment, it was decided that at least 10 percent of our budget will always be set aside for missions.
Waterbrook currently supports five full-time missionaries and has members who are regularly involved in short-term missions activities.  Local outreach is also a priority and we regularly engage in activities as part of a campaign to Love Wylie.

At Waterbrook Bible Fellowship, we believe God calls us to GO and to SEND.
