The staff members of SOAP are comprised of missionaries from Independent Baptist churches in the US, and all serve with Baptist International Missions Inc. (BIMI) in Chattanooga, TN. Though they come from varied locations and backgrounds, they now have come together for the purpose of serving the Lord Jesus Christ at SOAP in Soroti, Uganda.
