God is a missionary God and He has called His Church to be a part of global missions. He is making a name for Himself across the world and He invites ordinary people to be a part of His bigger story in His plan to bring redemption to every tribe, nation, and tongue. Using Southside, God has called out and sent individuals, couples, and teams to share the Message of Christ to our city, county, state, country, and to the Far East to Europe, from the Americas to Southeast Asia, from Central Asia to Sub-Saharan Africa, and from North Africa to the Middle East. If you have a heart for other nations and cultures and have a willing heart, check out Missions at Southside. Please check out our Facebook page for more information or events.
Sparkman Homes Ministry
The heart of our ministry is to share the love, compassion and gospel of Jesus Christ with the children of the Sparkman Homes community. We provide age appropriate Bible lessons, crafts, games, sports and snacks in a caring environment. Our intent is that each child will know Christ as their Savior and be a light in their community.

For several years, we have been ministering to a portion of the medical community on a monthly basis. Every third Thursday of the month we deliver a small gift to the medical staff on duty on the Pediatric Floor and the Pediatric ICU at Huntsville Hospital Women’s and Children’s facility. These gifts include a short message of appreciation. We deliver between 45 and 50 gifts each month. Click here to learn more.
Ministry to Internationals
We reach out to internationals in the Huntsville-Madison area to show the love of Christ and help them experience American life and culture. Some may need help with English, rides, help with unexpected events, or an opportunity to enjoy being invited to a local home for dinner and holidays. Currently, we have a weekly Japanese ladies Bible study. We plan fun events and activities throughout the year including a New Years' Mochi Party and Picnic for Internationals in June.
State and National Missions
Each year we have a team that travels to northern Michigan to minister to Peshawbeestown Native Americans and others by partnering with a local church .
Southside sends out at least one international mission team each year. In 2019 we have a team going to Costa Rica to participate in prayer-walking, evangelism, creative outreach, working in schools and gospel distribution. Click here to learn more.
