International Missions

Palmetto Hills is committed to the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are honored to partner with the following missions and missionaries for the advance of Christ’s Kingdom.

The 1% Challenge

We are excited to be participating with Mission to the World to send 1% of our members (2 new long term missionaries) by the year 2030. Please pray with us about this challenge as we seek to heed God’s calling that each Christian be involved with the Great Commission.
