The world is smaller than it used to be. Our “neighbors” may live in our community, across the state, on the other side of the country, or across the globe. Winter Park Baptist Church is actively involved with mission work with our neighbors locally and around the world. We have commissioned missionaries in India, Haiti, North Carolina, and Florida. We regularly take teams to serve alongside our ministry partners and missionaries in places like India, Mexico, Haiti, Costa Rica and Helena, Arkansas.
As someone once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
