S.E.A. Mission (Service, Evangelism, Assistance) was founded in the mid 90s, by Dr. Denton Sumrall and his wife, Carol. After a boating vacation to the Islands of the Bahamas, Dr. Sumrall and Carol saw the need for a specific Mission dedicated to the people of the Bahamas. They visited the outlying settlements on Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands and immediately established a bond with the local Pastors..
After speaking to a church in N Florida about his trip and vision of establishing a Mission program to the Islands, he was approached and asked if he would assist their church in taking a Team to conduct summer VBS on the Island.
SEA Mission began that summer..
We assist mission teams to Grand Bahama Island to conduct vacation Bible schools, construction projects, and sports camps.
Many churches and groups have found that a vacation Bible school or construction project in the Bahamas is the ideal destination for an initial foreign mission trip. We often refer to it as Foreign Missions 101. The language is English, the crime rate is almost nil, the people are friendly and hospitable, the water is safe to drink, and medical care is readily available. Even better, the islanders love VBS.
S.E.A. Mission has continued to serve the Bahamas and their communities by participating in the Summer VBS programs and assisting in several building and repair projects for over 20 years.
