We are committed to raising up global partners from Faith Fellowship who will follow Jesus' call to 'Go' to the ends of the earth - passionate to expand God's global church in our generation.
Faith Fellowship values strong relationships with each of our global partners (BELOW), and have therefore recently implemented a network of 'Barnabas Teams' to encourage, support, and care for our partners. These small groups of 4-8 committed people come together to care for their global partner in a variety of ways. Priority is on prayer, communication, practical help when on home assignment, and possible visits to the field by team members. If interested in joining one of our Barnabas Teams, please contact the team leader listed below.
As a "targeted ministry field" of Faith Fellowship, we partner with several ministries in Zambia (south-central Africa), and every third year commission a team to 'Go' on a short-term mission trip to Zambia, strengthening our relationship with these ministry partners. (A team was in Zambia May 23 - June 11, 2016. CLICK HERE for more information on that trip).
