Our mission is to reach people and help them walk with God – all people, from our community to the ends of the earth. Missions is not a separate ministry or program at Idlewild Baptist Church it’s the essence of who we are. Idlewild offers opportunities that will engage our members in being obedient to fulfill Jesus’ “Great Commission.”


We offer training classes that prepare and equip you to share His message, as well as opportunities for you to minister around the world. Idlewild On Mission wants to help:


  • Inform our church of the work that God is doing through out the world.
  • Mobilize our church into the mission field on a short or long term bases.
  • Educate our church on how they can be a part of the Great Commission.


It doesn’t matter where, it could be the call to love loud in the city of Tampa or to go work across the United States or around the world. We are all called and Idlewild On Mission wants to help you know what the Lord has in mind for you to do and give you the tools to do it.
