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:

Eduardo & Cindi Angelo  Eduardo and Cindi are pastors and church planters in Lisbon, Portugal, focusing on planting pioneer churches, reaching the lost, training new Christians and releasing them to be leaders.  Under their leadership, Portugal, along with Spain, became official FM missions districts in 2004.

Andy & Lizet Bowen  Andy teaches English-speaking missionaries Guarani (one of Paraguay’s two national languages) and familiarizes them with Paraguayan culture. Andy and Lizet also work with Paraguayans to help them become more effective in their church roles—roles such as youth work, teaching, leading worship, and evangelism.
