Mission: Miami, FL 
2020 Date To Be Announced
 

Dates To Be Announced • Miami, FL

The team will be working alongside North American Mission Board church planters in the bustling city of Miami. Though there will be some opportunities for light service tasks, the primary focus of the team's efforts will be given to assisting church planters in sharing the Gospel in this culturally diverse SEND city. With Miami having inherited nicknames such as " The Gateway of Latin America," " Little Haiti," or "Little Jamaica," it's easy to understand why reaching residents of Miami with the Gospel aids in reaching the nations with the Gospel.
