Our Church's Mission

Mission Around the World - Latin America
Mylinda Baits is a pastoral artist, activist and advocate. She is passionate about the prevention of all forms of exploitation, particularly human trafficking; the healing and transformation of trauma survivors; and the resilient witness of the people of God in the Iberoamerica-Caribbean region.

Traveling extensively throughout Latin America, Mylinda partners with International Ministries colleagues, national church leadership and various social organizations to address the exploitation and trafficking of women and children as well as to use restorative art-making for trauma recovery.

Mylinda uses her gifts of hospitality and pastoral care to create sustainable and safe spaces where servant leaders and those who do the hard work of rescue, relief and restoration can be nurtured and renewed.
