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, this endeavor may seem overwhelming.
Where would I go?
How would I get there?
What would I do once I am there?
BIMI's Connect short-term program may be the answer. By joining a Connect team, individuals will have an opportunity to use their talents and abilities for the cause of Christ.
Each Connect trip is led by experienced BIMI field directors who organize and oversee all necessary details.
Prayerfully consider becoming a part of BIMI Connect. You will be glad you did!

You will experience firsthand several aspects unique to the Amazon such as Jungle Boat Ministry, Três Fronteiras, day visit to Dolphin Bay, and jungle wildlife.
