Mission Partners

At West Bradenton Baptist, we believe we are called to be the "hands and feet of Jesus" by sharing Christ's love through our words and our actions.  We have Mission Partners we serve by giving of our time and our resources.  We give our members opportunities to be Christ's "witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).  If you would like to get involved or would like more information, please contact our Director of Missions, Laila Wilkerson at lailaw@gowestbradenton.org
