Greetings and welcome to the FGMB Missions page.

Our church sees each person in our congregation as being a missionary in their own context – whether at home, school or work. At the same time we do support missionaries from our church whose involvement in missions is their full time vocation – both short and long term.

In order to support these missionaries, our church has developed the following information for both short and long term involvement. You are welcome to download the files and review the information.

May God bless and keep you all.
