Missions

The Missions Ministry of Olive Baptist Church seeks to empower God’s people to be on mission in Northwest Florida, the United States, and around the World.  Olive Missions does this through the 4 Core Values:

1) Evangelism and Discipleship
2) Planting and Connecting Churches
3) Sustainable Models
4) Teach ability for both Olive and our partners.  As believers we are called to be on mission in our communities of daily life.
 
Acts 1:8 says, “…but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth”. 

This passage of scripture begs the question, “Why not you?”  We want you to Discover, Go, and Invest in missions work with the body of Christ.  Please join us to learn more about upcoming trips and steps to prepare for our Missionary Journeys.
