Orlando

Why Orlando?

For decades, this city has been known largely for its theme parks and attractions. But in recent years, Orlando has blossomed into a major business center, attracting companies such as Siemens, Northrop Grumman and Boeing, just to name a few.

You may not know that Orlando is also home to one of the largest universities in the nation. Nearly 60,000 students attend the University of Central Florida near the heart of the city. The opportunity that exists here to impact the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ is almost unparalleled among college campuses in the United States.

Both on and off campus, Orlando is also experiencing a boom of international students and families, many of whom are desperate for American friends and have little, if any, exposure to the message of God's love for them.
