To fulfill the Great Commission
Matthew 28:19, 20 (NIV)
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
We are blessed to fulfill the Great Commison by currently supporting nine foreign missionary families, serving on short-term domestic disaster releif opportunites, supporting church family members as they embark on their World Race journey and through opportunites like Operation Christmas Child.

Holt International http://www.holtinternational.org/
We’re so excited to follow God’s Word and do what it says to take care of orphans (James 1:27) and we have chosen to sponsor a child through Holt International as a church family. This is a great opportunity to teach the children how to live out God’s Word. We are encouraging the children to participate by praying for Eun-yeong and her family, bringing an offering weekly to help support her and also participate in writing letters and sending pictures to her as the Lord leads. We will be sharing her updates with the children when we receive them from Holt International. Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children God’s Word and share experiences with them that allow them to see God’s Word lived out in their daily lives.

If you would like more information about the missions and the foreign missionary families we support please connect with Sharon Ballard or call the church office.
Adopt a Missionary Family
We are praying for church families to "adopt" one of the missionary families we support. Adopting means you will commit to pray for this family and be in regular communication with them as a source of encouragment.
It is our prayer that our partnering with these foreign missions is making a positive and eternal difference in the world and fulfill the Great Commission. Through your prayers, involvement, tithes and offerings here at Faith Fellowship you are investing in God’s Kingdom.
Domestic Missionaries Supported by Faith
Our Ashley Fierros has joined her sister and brother-in-love and their family and several others in Absecon, NJ. They are committed to the mission of making disciples who can make disciples. They believe Missional Communities are the primary vehicle for discipleship. Life-on-Life discipleship best happens when they apply the Gospel to our lives, while changing in Christ-like-character and building redemptive relationships. Missional Community is a committed group of believers (FAMILY) who live out (MISSIONARIES) Jesus’ call to go (SERVANTS) and make disciples. This is done in a specific area of the city, or even a particular culture, to demonstrate the Gospel in the way we care for and love one another and the neighborhood. We appreciate and adapt to culture in order to reach people, but they also challenge and confront it with the Gospel and God’s Word.
As a community and individuals, they share meals, pray for others, and expose them to the Gospel through word and deed – both to those who believe it and to those who do not.
