At FBCF Missions means more than putting a check in the offering and leaving the actual work up to someone else. At FBCF missions means me. Here you will be inspired as you hear stories of FBCF folks that are doing missions both here at home and overseas. You will be challenged to pray, give, and to take the good news of Jesus to people who may or may not have had an opportunity to know who Jesus is.
