Our desire is to build a center for missional community at FBC Sharon.
We believe everyone is called to be "on mission." Missions Mobilization is our strategy for reaching and impacting Laurel, Mississippi, the United States, and certain parts of the world.

We are currently giving 12% of our budget to the cooperative program, 1% to Jones County Baptist Association, and 2% to Missions Mobilization.

U. S. Missions
The United States Missions Lead Team is led by Ronnie McAlpin. The two areas emphasized in this strategy are disaster relief and partnerships with other churches.
We have a team of people who have been trained and are ready to be deployed at times of natural disaster.
We also coordinate with churches throughout the states that we can help. We desire to build relationships with these churches to strengthen their work for Christ.
The International Missions Lead Team is led by Chris McKinnon.
We are currently sending 14 people this summer to Honduras and China on service mission trips. We are seeking God's direction in reaching an unreached people group and plan to engage a specific group of people who may have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We desire to take responsibility for getting the Word of God to them and be an example of it in front of them.
