  1. Shawn; If you get down to Florida again, in the Tampa Bay area, I recommend you contact Northside Baptist Church on 38th avenue in St Petersburg, and First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks on Walsingham Road in Seminole. I have been a member of both churches in the past and both are very supportive of missions. Both hold annual missions conferences. Northside has approx. 2500 members and First Baptist has approx. 5000 members. Hope this helps you.
