Minister of Missions – Chris Chambers
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
The FBCT Missions Ministry exists to be His witnesses in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth! With multiple opportunities offered throughout the year for you to become involved in missions at the local, national and international levels, it’s our purpose to help the people of God “Do His Work,” together.
