WINTER HAVEN, Fla.—Stephen Simpson has been selected as the new president of Faith Baptist Mission. Currently serving as director of music and finance at Faith Baptist Church in Winter Haven, Simpson will make the transition to his new role in January 2019.

Pastor Nathan O. Osborne III, acting president of the mission, says that “Stephen is a unique young man with organizational skills and a mind to work.” The board members of Faith Baptist Mission, a ministry of Faith Baptist Church, are already seeing the fruit of those qualities. The board members say he has a good plan for the mission’s strategic growth and are encouraging him to move forward with that plan.

Stephen is also “committed to working with pastors and seeing them engage with their missionaries on a deeper level,” Osborne says. “Stephen desires to truly assist local churches in loving, caring for, and supporting their missionaries in ways that they did not know possible.”
