Local Missions

Our mission work begins right here in the Tampa Bay area with many different partnerships and projects. Don’t think that you have to go to another country to do missions. Mission work is woven into the fabric of Idlewild and we want to encourage you to be “on mission” everyday in your home, neighborhood, school, workplace and community. Check out these opportunities that Idlewild On Mission offers close to home:
