purpose of the missions program at Bible Fellowship Church is to be
actively engaged in the spreading of the gospel in accordance with the
Great Commission as stated by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20. That is, to go
into all the world and make disciples. This includes local ministries
(Sebring), distant ministries (Florida and the USA), and international
ministries (outside the USA).
The missions program is monitored by the missions committee and the committee is under the supervision of the church elders. The general responsibilities of the Missions Committee are as follows:
"Prayer is the mighty engine that is to move the missionary work." - A. B. Simpson
The missionary task goes forward by prayer. There are many ways to pray for missionaries. The following are two suggestions for praying for the needs of missionaries.
Personal: Pray for missionary families that they will communicate well with each other, stay healthy, their children will enjoy living cross culturally, that their children will find good schooling, their family members left behind in their home countries, their support level will remain high.
Ministry: Pray that they will be fruitful, safe, protected from demonic influences, and culturally effective in ministry.
