Missions and Missionary Enterprises
Always an important part of FBCR
From the beginnings of our church, there has been a desire to fulfill the Great Commission and reach our world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is our mandate and we are committed to fulfilling His directive through our local ministries and a world-wide missions program.
Jesus said: “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20
Today, our Great Commission team numbers over 45 active missionaries and agencies around the world as well as right here in the USA. Many of our missionaries are involved in the following:
- Church planting
- Specialized services to include Children's Ministries, Mission Care, Medical Missions, Bible Translation, Sports, Technology, and more.
- Educational Endeavors
We are privileged to have a number from our church families serve as full time missionaries as well as short term. At the present time, we are involved in supporting numerous members as they serve in the following endeavors:
Local Outreach Endeavors
Many of our folks give of their time and talents to local ministries such as:
- Child Evangelism Fellowship: 5-Day Clubs, Oakland County Fair
- Grace Centers of Hope
- Women and Teens Crisis Pregnancy Center
- Area camps and ministries
Short-term Mission Trips
Each year we invest in mission trips. This provides an opportunity for our church family to share in "real" missions. We have partnered with the following:
- Construction for Worldwide Evangelism
- Wild Alaska Missions
- Youth Mission Trips both local and international
