This is where Old Tampa meets chic; where big business happens a few minutes from your waterfront home.
South Tampa is Kennedy Boulevard. It’s the Gasparilla Parade on the Bayshore. It’s the Westshore Business District; Tampa International Airport; International Plaza; and neighborhoods like Palma Ceia, Hyde Park, SoHo, and closer to downtown, Davis Islands and Harbor Island.
So, the planter for South Tampa would have to relate well to folks who deal with a high level of income, expense and the pressure that goes with it. He would partner with businesses, churches and para-church ministries that are reaching the business community. He would would partner with the schools and neighborhoods that serve all the kids (and moms and dads) in these areas.
Demographically, South Tampa looks like one of our most artsy, upscale, densely populated and strategic centers for sharing the gospel. And, it is. But, in many neighborhoods just north and south and east, you can find tremendous opportunity to minister to the homeless and the economically broke-down parts of the city.
And, like most parts of town, you will find a great ethnic flavor in our Cuban sandwich shops, and Italian groceries.
