CONNECT WITH THE COMMISSION
Jesus tells us in His Word to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. However, for many of us, that endeavor can seem overwhelming. You might wonder "Where would I go and how would I get there or what can I do to make a difference?"
BIMI's CONNECT program may help you answer those questions. By joining a CONNECT Team, you will find opportunities to use your talents and abilities for the cause of Christ while pursuing His will for your life. Every CONNECT Trip is led by an experienced BIMI Field Director who will organize and oversee all the necessary details.
Will you prayerfully consider BIMI CONNECT? You will be glad you did!
REASONS TO CONSIDER CONNECT
DEEPEN YOUR LOVE FOR GOD AND OTHERS
— A CONNECT Trip
allows people to step away from everyday life and deepen their love for God in the context of ministry. During your time on the mission field, you will begin to see the world for which Jesus Christ died through new eyes of compassion.
DEVELOP YOUR MINISTRY POTENTIAL
— You may have dismissed the idea that God could use you personally to make a difference in the world and reach the lost. While on the mission field during a CONNECT Trip
, you will be stretched by a variety of new cultural experiences and ministry opportunities. A CONNECT Trip will challenge your surrender and help you develop your full potential for service. You will also be able to explore the idea of missions as a life calling.
DISCOVER NEW POSSIBILITIES
— Come alongside veteran missionaries as they share their experiences and show you the joys and challenges of missionary life. The work of a church-planting missionary is very rewarding. Great needs and even greater potential for ministry exist in our world today. Faithful servants of Christ must go out and reach their generation with the Gospel. Discover all this through BIMI CONNECT

We are excited to announce another mission trip to assist a church planter in Miami, Florida. It will take place in the Miami Lakes area. This is a short five-day trip with two very full days of ministry in the Miami area. Anyone making this trip should be prepared to be on their feet and be prepared for a good deal of walking during our time in Miami. (Example: Scripture distribution, park ministry.) We will also take the time to show you the city of Miami and the many different cultural areas where churches need to be planted. You will be attending the Sunday services at Life Baptist Church which is a new church plant pastored by Luis Briceno. Ability to speak Spanish is not required but would be a plus.
This trip is limited to 6 people and is primarily designed for men, but we will consider couples. The cost includes your housing, ground transportation, light breakfast, and some meals. Airfare to and from Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport not included. We require that everyone taking this trip fly into Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Your Arrival at Fort Lauderdale /Hollywood International Airport must be before 4:00 PM on Thursday, October 19, 2022. Departure after the trip should be scheduled for Monday, October 23 after 8:00 AM.
