A note from Willy Rice

I am a fourth generation Floridian and whether this is your home for generations or you are new to the state, every one of us who live here know this: Florida is one of the most strategic mission fields anywhere. Its ethnic diversity and the millions of people who don't know Christ offers us an opportunity to impact the world by reaching Florida.

As we think about missions—both here and around the world—it involves both going and giving. The state missions offering is an opportunity to give. It is an opportunity to invest in the ministry of others and a reminder that every single one of us who are followers of Jesus need to be on mission for God.
