“Missions exists because worship doesn’t.”
That simple, yet profound, statement by John Piper says it all. Fellowship Bible Church is committed to global ministry precisely because there are still far too many people groups who do not worship Jehovah God. Until such time, missions will be a major focus and core value of this church.
Consequently, we are privileged to be partners with missionaries around the world. Our goal is to make sure our relationship with these men and women is much more than just a financial one. We do this in the following ways:
- Short-Term Mission Trips
Every year many of our number participate in short-term trips for a week or longer to support our current overseas workers as well as other worthy missions efforts around the world. These trips are a catalyst for not only helping those in foreign fields, but changing the ones from here who go and gain God’s perspective on the Great Commission.
- Missions Weekend
Each summer we dedicate a weekend to host as many FBC missionaries as can come from their foreign field to share what God is doing in and around them. It’s just one small way we can love on them and be reminded how big God is and how much He loves every tribe, language, and people group on the planet.
- Prayer Support
We strive to ensure that each missionary is supported through dedicated prayer for them and their ministry. Some members agree to pray for specific missionaries daily while others commit to regular prayer for all mission efforts.
- Missionary Adoption
Our goal is to have every missionary of the church “adopted” by either a Life Group or some other ministry group of the church. Such “adoptions” help guarantee that our missionaries and their families are cared for physically, financially and spiritually!
Part of our ongoing diligence in becoming more like Christ is developing a heart of compassion for those “in all the world.” Through the Missions Ministry we are striving to help each person at Fellowship Bible Church develop a more global-minded vision of God and His work.
