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.

 

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.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica

We are working with Pastor Jaime Fuentes to reach the cities of Tarcoles and Orotina in Costa Rica. The ministries we use consist of door-to-door evangelism, fishermen ministry, leadership and marriage conferences, VBS, and outreach ministry to the local schools and youth groups.

Cuba

Cuba

Our connection begins with the Florida Baptist Convention and the Eastern Cuba Baptist Convention. The opportunities to minister include leadership training of church members, evangelism training, and ministry of prayer. The team has nightly preaching services and VBS.

Greece

Greece

We are partnering with IMB Missionaries for the purpose of planting a church in a major city. We work on this mission through English As A Second Language classes for Muslim refugees, prayer walks, and community outreach events.

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.

South Asia

South Asia

South Asia is famous for its overwhelming effects on the senses. From urban sprawl to remote villages, from mountaintop kingdoms to ancient civilizations, from majestic temples to humble shacks––the sights, sounds, and smells illustrate the vibrancy of life.  Perhaps the most captivating part of South Asia is its people. More than one billion people––more than one-fifth of the world’s total population––live in South Asia. They represent a diverse range of backgrounds, religions, socioeconomic statuses, and general walks of life.  But what is truly overwhelming is the realization that these more than one billion people, made up of Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and tribal peoples, don’t know the one true God. More specifically, 682 people groups don’t have any access to the gospel––no Bible, no church, no Christians among them. South Asia needs Jesus, the only one who can satisfy their search for eternal life.  More than one billion eyes and hearts in South Asia are looking for hope. Join us as we join God in the things he is doing among South Asians to make himself known.
