On Mission

We believe God has called us to do a good deed and share a Good Word, expressing our faith outward across our city and around the world. We share generously with those around the world, through sharing our faith stories and meeting physical needs at the same time.

Last year, Gayton involved over 750 people on mission and shared more than $200,000 in support of the mission efforts of the church and through our mission partners around the world.

Our City

From the front steps of Gayton’s facility to our ministry partners across the city, we are helping to make a difference in our own backyard. Richmond is Our City.

See how Gayton supports its own Care Ministries and Toolbox Ministries, projects like the Spirit of Baseball camp, and other local efforts.


Our Region

Our Region stretches across Virginia and throughout our nation. Over the course of Gayton’s history, teams have traveled far and wide across Our Region.

See how we are currently supporting efforts through the Gayton Family Mission Trip, youth mission experiences and Disaster Relief.


Our World

Russia. Portugal. Panama.

We currently participate in a mission partnership with the Baptist churches of Panama. We support each other through the ministry projects we each seek to fulfill in Panama and Virginia. Gayton teams travel to Panama 3-4 times a year to serve and support our partners. In 2011, we helped feed starving children in Kenya without even leaving the church building (right).

We also support a number of international mission ministries, including our Virginia Baptist partnerships.

Ministries Gayton Supports

Through budgeted mission giving, Gayton supports missionaries and ministries in each of these three regions: Our City, Our Region and Our World.

Mission Grants

The Missions Council decided in 2012 to initiate Mission Grants, a funding program that allows the church to support short-term missionaries from the Gayton family who are participating in mission opportunities through other organizations.
