Short Term Mission
Beginning in February 2016 we have launched a partnership with Canadian Baptist Ministries to do short term mission trips to Cuba. We support, serve, and encourage the Fraternity of Baptist Churches of Cuba. Some of the projects include recovery from Hurricane Irma, microcredit projects to support vulnerable families who want to start or develop a small business and leadership training on integral mission. Interested in being part of the team? Contact Troy Taylor (email@example.com) .
Before our Cuba involvement, we did several inter-generational short term mission trips to Chapalla, Mexico, in partnership with a local church.
