Redeemer’s mission is to make Jesus’ invisible kingdom visible in Winter Haven, Polk County and the world. Below are our global partners and a brief description about their work.
Team Elswick | Missionaries to Panama
Tony and Amber Elswick are members of Redeemer that had been serving as missionaries in Nicaragua since the beginning of 2015. However, in 2019 they relocated their ministry to Panama. Their vision for Panama is to see the birth of an indigenous, church planting movement that has the ability and vision to train its own pastors, plant their own churches and send out its own missionaries. In order to accomplish that vision, Tony is working with local pastors to provide theological education. You can stay up-to-date with the Elswick's work on their website.
The Brocks | Missionaries to France
Christopher Brock - a native of Winter Haven - and his wife Donnette have been missionaries in France since the beginning of 2015.
