Text: Mark 12:30-31
Where is your mission field? In this message, Guest Speaker Tim DeTellis speaks from God’s Word to show us that our mission field is closer than we think. In practical ways, he helps us to identify our mission and consider ways that we can effectively fulfill the greatest commandments of Jesus.
New Missions is a non-profit organization based in Orlando, Florida which establishes local churches and Christian schools in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. They provide children with education, food, and medical care so that they can grow strong and make an impact in their community. Founded by Tim’s parents Pastor George and Jeanne DeTellis in 1983, New Missions has educated over 30,000 students and currently has over 10,000 students in school from pre-school through high school. They value equipping the local communities and employ more than 600 Haitian and Dominican staff members.

He is the author of books such as Good Neighbors Make Great Neighborhoods, The Power of One, Haiti: Past, Present and Future, and Too Close to Ignore. One of his passions is supporting the efforts of crisis pregnancy centers and the right to life. Tim speaks at churches, colleges, organizations, and Christian events across the United States.
