Global Missions

About 1/3 of the world’s population lives outside the reach of the local church. Nobody is there to share the gospel with them. That’s the reason there is an urgency to send missionaries around the world. We span the globe from South American countries such as Brazil and Paraguay all the way to Thailand with many destinations in between.

 

Idlewild On Mission has a long term relationship with “Signature Partners” around the world that help us be effective by extending the reach of our short term mission trips by discipling the people that we reach year round.

 

We are also partners with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. This is a partnership that includes 40 thousand churches that work together to spread the good news.

Bolivia

We will be working with IMB Missionaries Steve and Marilee Flook in the city of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Our focus will be to plant a church in the outskirts of Santa Cruz. Initially, we will be doing prayer walks in the neighborhood where the church will be located.The next step is to look for a “Man of Peace” who will help us start a community Bible Study. The goal is to grow this Bible Study into the community church. Most of the ministry will be door-to-door evangelism, VBS and leadership training.

The opportunities to minister include leadership training of church members, evangelism training, minister to baseball and soccer teams, and ministry of prayer. T he construction work on the new church building includes concrete work, and requires flexibility and endurance. The team has nightly preaching services and VBS for approximately 150 children.

Amazon River

Amazon River

We are currently in partnership with “Amazon Vida” which provides IBC the means to penetrate villages and “preaching points” on the river through an assortment of ministry events.  Some of the activities include VBS, medical and dental clinics, leadership training, discipleship of believers, sport activities and many other Gospel-focused events that all center on the “Cross.”  IBC had initiated this vision by adopting the Uaicurapa tributary that runs off the Amazon River as an avenue to work with local river ministers to evangelize, train and disciple the natives to reach beyond the tributary and to impact the 35K plus villages on the Amazon.  Come enjoy the beauty of the Amazon and the work God is doing on this massive river.

Paraguay

Paraguay

Sixty percent of Paraguay’s population is under the age of 30. They are disillusioned with the stale religion of their parents and they are searching for answers. Their culture makes them feel cheap, empty, plastic, and dead-like. Jesus Christ is the best news around for the empty, plastic youth of Paraguay. We are partnering with Pastor David Barudi in reaching the city of Ciudad Del Este.
