Global Missions

Jesus says, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19) First Baptist is happy to support many missionaries and ministries, including the following:

  • Rodrigo and Carol Barrera

    Missionaries in Guatemala

    Rodrigo and Carol are also missionaries from our home church. They work with Wycliffe to translate the Bible into the native language of the people they minister to in Guatemala.

  • Madeline Flores-Lopez

    Missionary in Dominican Republic

    Madeline serves as the coordinator of mission volunteers and groups throughout the Caribbean. Madeline’s passion for missions began when she attended her first World Mission Conference in 1990. Ten years later, at the World Mission Conference in 2000, Madeline knew it was time to resign from her day job and become a full-time missionary with International Ministries.

  • Mike and Becky Mann

    The Convention of Baptist Churches-Chilean Mission invited Barbara and Dwight to serve with them in ministries of economic and leadership development. Their primary focus is with Mapuche churches in southern Chile. The goals of the Bolicks' ministries with the Mapuche are, first, recovery of identity as a people made in the image of God; and second, discovery of vocation as productive stewards of God's creation.
