SKP Africa Mission Trip

November 11-21st

Bay Hope's Suncoast Kids Place is teaming up with LOHADA, an orphanage for abused and abandoned children in Arusha, Tanzania, to establish a grieving and trauma center for the children there. We are replicating our SKP model and strategically fitting it within the local African cultural context. This marks the first of hopefully many global SKP model replications. We have assembled a team of very special people to travel to Arusha to launch SKP Africa, including SKP's Deborah Brooks and Kim Pacheco, Missions' Abdel Rodriguez, Bay Hope's Africa ambassador and longtime members Diane and Dave Engelhardt, and Carrollwood Cultural Center Curator and Art Therapist Michele Stone.

How can Bay Hope people get involved?

  • Join the prayer circle. Commit to pray for our team and this very special launch from now through the end of November.

  • Donate to the mission. We need funds to help us purchase art supplies, training materials, etc. Donations can be made online with a note "For the benefit of SKP Africa"

Children are special and amazing gifts from God. At Bay Hope Church, we encourage parents to have their little ones baptized as a way of saying that God is already at work in the child’s life and the parents are acknowledging this fact and committing themselves to raising their children in His ways. Early childhood baptism is for kids in nursery - kindergarten.

The Early Childhood Baptism Class is required for participation in Early Childhood Baptism. The class is held the weekend before the actual baptism for parents only. Childcare is available in our nursery and preschool/kindergarten rooms.

Early Childhood baptism is November 17, 2019 during both services. Please register before October 31st. The prerequisite baptism class is on November 10th at 11:00am.

Illuminate the Bay

Illuminate the Bay is a week-long series of events where people are welcome to explore the big questions of life in venues where they live, learn, work and play.

Featuring speakers from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries who are trained to talk about faith and God, answer life’s toughest questions, and do so in a thoughtful and winsome way.

Events both big and small will be held throughout Tampa Bay in places you wouldn’t expect - businesses, coffee houses, pubs, and universities. Whether it's an audience of 30, hundreds, or thousands, we will be meeting people where they are and engaging them in a loving and respectful way. We want them to come with curiosity and leave with clarity. Finally a chance to share your faith and correct misconceptions about Jesus and Christianity.

Be bold. Host an event. Change lives.
