The History of Faith Mission Giving
“Across the Street, Across the Country, and Across the World”
It is exciting and a privilege to be a part of God’s Great Commission of expanding His Kingdom. It is amazing and rewarding to hear of God’s work around the world in drawing people to himself. Take your involvement in missions to the next level by being a part of our Missions Team, or even going on a short-term trip. Maybe you are saying that you don’t know anything about missions. Well, this is a great place to start and a great way to grow your faith.
We need all sorts of folks and talents – from coordinators and organizers to prayer warriors and communicators. If the Lord had been prompting you about missions, reach out to the team and we can find a place for you. Arise and shine by praying, giving, and going.
