The World for Him is a news-centered website started by Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Alabama. The site allows supporters to connect with missionaries in the field through news updates and prayer requests.

The Missions Ministry works through the following five areas:

Urban Ministry:

We focus on the Fairfield community and partner with several local ministries with the mutual goal of producing  the next generation of urban leaders.

Church Revitalization Ministry:

Church revitalization restores His people to spiritual and functional vitality.

This inevitably leads to statistical growth in conversions and scriptural discipleship for God’s glory and our own good. We help this process through leadership training and conferences.

Global Ministry:
