With trembling gratefulness in my heart, I look at the remarkable cluster of visionary ministries growing like fruit on the tree of Bethlehem Baptist Church.
- We are a kind of mission sending agency with 85 foreign missionary units (families or singles) who count Bethlehem as their main sending base.

- Desiring God has been spreading resources and holding conferences for over a decade and nourishes people around the world with its Internet presence.
- Children Desiring God is transforming the way children are nurtured in over two thousand churches in the US and overseas.
- Bethlehem Urban Initiatives pushes truth and love into the inner city.
- Treasuring Christ Together plants churches and channels Christ-exalting relief and reformation to the poorest of the poor.
