Haiti Mission Partnership
Over the past 8 years, Temple has partnered with A Door to Hope in Nashville to work with the people of Haiti. We have been blessed to be involved in over 15 trips to Haiti, been a part of building a church in Grand Goave, built or funded over 15 houses in different communities, and worked with the people of Haiti to help disciple many. Currently, we are partnering with Pastor Arnold in the community of Lasaline, Haiti. Land has recently been purchased and plans are to build a building as soon as funds are raised. Join us as we pray for Haiti. Please pray that more will come to know the Lord. There is much work to be done. Because of the political unrest in Haiti, our Haiti missions trips have been put on hold. We have switched our focus to the Dominican Republic for safety reasons.
We will be traveling to the Dominican Republic with A Door to Hope to build a home and work with a local ministry in the community to help with their programs and possibly work with an orphanage. Contact person is Andy Nash. Estimated trip cost is $1,600.
New York Mission
Temple currently partners with Bridge Community Church in Queens, New York. Bridge Community Church is a North American Mission Board supported church plant. The dream of this group is to start new Southern Baptist churches along the 7 train stops as the train travels from Manhattan to Long Island City. So far, two churches have been planted. The first was New City Church and the second, Bridge Community Church. Every October, we travel to New York and assist BCC with their carnival held in Queensbridge Park. This carnival helps the church get into the community and get to know people. Our own Ryan O'Neal and his wife Haley are moving to New York and will be a part of BCC ministry team.
In 2020, we will have two opportunities to serve in New York. Our annual October trip will be October 15-18 for the Fall Festival. If you are interested in serving in October, please contact Keith O'Neal. Our second opportunity will be December 4-6. for Coats for the Community. We will be assisting Bridge Community in a coat distribution for their neighborhood. If you are interested in being a part of this partnership, please see Associate Pastor Mark Carroll. Estimate cost for each trip is $700 per person.
RCBA Medical missions at home
We will also be serving and supporting the Robertson County Baptist Association's Medical Missions at Home in Springfield, TN on August 15, 2020. More than 300 volunteers came together in 2019, to serve the community offering free medical, dental and vision services. If you are a health care professional or just want to serve, please contact Dr. Robert Tyson at the RCBA office.
Hispanic Church Plant
Temple committed to send the Robertson County Baptist Association $10,000 for 3 years to support a Hispanic church plant in Springfield, TN.

If you would like to contribute to this project, please designate your gift to the RCBA Hispanic Mission Work or if you would like to help in other ways please contact Pastor H.D. or Robert Tyson at RCBA.
