About Missions at Faith Fellowship
“…and you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere, in Jerusalem, in Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8
A portion of Faith Fellowship’s operating budget is used for missions support in the local community (Jerusalem), in areas beyond the Riverbend (Judea and Samaria), and overseas (the ends of the earth). Of the total Missions budget, over 40% goes to Christ-centered ministries in Alton and the surrounding area. The remainder goes to support the work of Christian missions in other parts of the world. Some of these funds are also designated for quick response to immediate needs during times of crisis both locally and around the world.
The following missions receive annual support from Faith Fellowship through financial assistance, prayer and/or hands-on volunteer support.
