Challenge 2025 Gathering

Challenge 2025 Gathering

Date: February 22, 2022 | 8 am – 4 pm

Location: First Baptist Church Orlando | 3000 S John Young Pkwy, Orlando, FL 32805

As believers we are challenged to live out our faith in our daily lives through evangelism and discipleship. We each face challenges and hardships as we seek to advance God’s Kingdom right where He has placed us. We know as Florida Baptists we can do more together than we ever could alone.

Baptisms. Church Plants. Church Revitalizations. Mission Engagements. Maguire State Missions Offering. Cooperative Program Giving.

These are not just checklist items. They are indicators of the feet on the ground working for the glory of God. No one person, no one church can accomplish all that God has called us to.

So we work together. We challenge and sharpen one another. We encourage our brothers and sisters and we pick each other up when it is too hard to go it alone.

Gather with us on February 22 for a time of facing our challenges, addressing our ministry contexts and struggles and equipping one another to continue the fight for the advancement of the Gospel.
