Mission 1:8 devotes an entire school day in service to the local community. All middle school and high students and faculty participate in a variety of service projects throughout the Greater Memphis area.
Service To Others
As a Briarcrest family, we desire for our students, faculty, and staff to reflect the attitude of Christ. This desire comes from Acts 1:8:
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Our goal is to let the Word of God transform every part of our lives so that we live intentionally and on mission. Mission 1:8 is our initiative to be the hands and feet of Christ in our school, local community, and world.
Each year students from Briarcrest serve Jesus Christ by serving others on mission trips.
Each year, Briarcrest High School partners with Orphanos Foundation of Memphis in our trip to Quito, Ecuador. While in Ecuador, we work with a local school, Montebello Academy. Our students and teacher leaders serve the community through various ministry opportunities. One of the highlights of this trip is facilitating vacation bible schools to local children in a community near the site of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot is evangelization of the Huaorani people in "Operation Auca".
