Global Missions

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son…”

In response to God’s work on our behalf, we are both obligated and honored to “go and make disciples of all nations.”  The World Missions Team focuses on ministry beyond the borders of our country.  We endeavor to educate the members of our congregation, helping them become acquainted with our missionaries, their work, and their needs.  Our goal is to challenge the members of our congregation to get involved in world ministry by providing financial and prayer support and by volunteering to serve on mission teams.

WFMC regularly organizes teams of volunteers to visit one of our missionaries and assist them in their work.   Some teams concentrate on outreach ministries including Bible schools, evangelism, and visitation.

Missionaries we currently support:

Creative Access Regions – WFMC heavily supports one family who lives in an area where the Gospel of Christ is not welcome. Pray for safety for them and their children as they study language, teach English, and build friendships.

WFMC also supports organizations, including Evangelism Resources, Moscow Evangelical Seminary, the Philippines Community Care Center, and Free Methodist World Missions (country shares) with both prayer and finances.
