About Our Missions Ministry

STF is a Church for the city, country, and nation. In Mattew 28:19, Jesus commanded the first disciples to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” Did you know that more than 6,000 of the world’s people groups are still unreached? That translates to an estimated 3.28 billion unreached people living in the world today out of 7.84 billion people globally. We’ve still got a lot of work to do at home and abroad! Please make no mistake. The great commission is for us to obey. At STF, we want to see God’s glory realized in the lives of those who are still walking in darkness without the gospel, which is the message of eternal life. Our vision is to reach the lost with the gospel. Then, disciple them in order to release missionaries into the parts of the world where God is calling.

Hurricane Ida Disaster Relief

Due to Hurricane Ida, the GO Team will be headed to Metairie, Louisiana, to assist with Mass-Feeding and Cleanup & Recovery in a few weeks. The FL Baptist Command Center will be at Metairie Baptist Church, where we will join forces with volunteers from churches all over the country to serve together to make an eternal impact in the lives of those affected. Would you please pray for our neighbors in Louisiana and join us in serving those in need. Please consider joining our GO Team this Sept 24th-30th to help with relief efforts.
