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.
We have the opportunity to send bibles to Central Vietnam. The Mnong people don’t have access to the Bible in their language. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to translate, print, and send 3,000 Bibles to this people group. So will you consider giving to this project? We plan to match whatever money is raised. Because of your generosity, people will have the opportunity to read the Gospel for the first time in their language.
Do you want updates on all the upcoming GO Team projects and mission trips? Make sure to sign up for the GO Team newsletter.
The STF GO Team supports missions through local and international trips, community service, and disaster relief. Members of the GO Team are notified about weekly local missions activities and special service opportunities, such as monthly homeless feedings.
Being on the mission field is HARD and can often feel very lonely. The goal of this team is to pair STF members with individual mission partners so they can have people intentionally praying for them and encouraging them. You’ll be their Champion from right here in Tampa.
