Fellowship’s Short-term Missionaries
Each month as you financially give to the church, a portion of that giving goes to bringing the gospel all over the United States and even to the ends of the earth!
We have the great privilege at Fellowship of supporting both short-term and long-term missionaries that are serving in so many different capacities literally all around the world!
In this section of our webpage, we wanted to let you know some of the places and people around the world that your tithes are touching!
Just this year alone, because of God so graciously providing, we have been able to come behind 33 short-term missionaries as they step out in faith and follow God’s leading to go. Here is a list of Fellowship’s 2014-2015 short-term missionaries, where they are headed, what they will be doing, and some ways that you can be praying for them!
