Who is Come and See run by?
Come and See is a ministry of Brady Faith Center. Brady Faith Center works directly with the poor and marginalized in the south side of Syracuse, NY. The vision is to bring people together from the suburbs and city to create ongoing relationships, which can teach and heal people on both sides.
Can my church customize a Come and See mission?
Yes! We will work with you to serve you in your needs! Do you want to do an overnight mission trip? A 3 day service immersion? A day of service? A workshop with a speaker and small group questions? A large-scale service project over the course of the year? We will work with you, and plan exactly what you need. Speakers, service sites, food options, sample schedules, etc can be provided and customized.
But don't you run your own mission trips?
Yes. We have run Summer Servants, a local mission trip for teens, for many years, and have brought together many churches and groups for this special trip. We are also looking to run our own college immersion, and maybe offer a specific adult immersion. But we also want to be able to work with groups to bring more and more people into a closer relationship with God by coming into relationship with people in our city.
Do you charge for your services?
We will never turn away a church or group because of money. We also want to continue to be able to provide our services in order to further God's Kingdom in our city and in the hearts of the people you are reaching. Please contact us, and we look forward to having a discussion regarding a donation for our services. All donations fo directly to fund the Brady Faith Center's budget, which runs over 20 ministries in the south side of Syracuse.
Come and See is here to serve your ministry
We at Come and See want to be a catalyst for bringing people together in Syracuse and the surrounding areas. We want to pass along knowledge, lessons, and stories to you and your group, whether it be teens, young adults, or seniors, or anyone in between. We have the capabilities to provide speakers, set up service sites, bring you into homes or places of ministries, or run Bible studies or small groups. We want to make it easy for you while providing the people of Syracuse a way to BE, SEE, LISTEN, and RESPOND to the needs of our city.
Why do you send groups to different sites other than
Brady Faith Center?
It's true- Come and See is run by Brady Faith Center. And yes, Brady is always in need of volunteers! But, while planning for immersions, we want to connect people and ministries all over our city. We might send a team to Brady and another team to a ministry on the northside of Syracuse. We aim to be a catalyst for service and connection all over our city. The need of the group and the need of Brady and any specific date or time might not always match up, so we are in connection with many different people to come up with an immersion that works for you.
