FBCR is actively involved in international missions. We have one former member serving full time in China and have had several members serve on short-term mission trips. One of our most active relationships is with an Evangelical Christian church in Ukraine. We have sent mission teams there 7 times in the past 12 years, including youth and adults. The group organizes and runs summer VBS programs in rural villages, attracting children and families to Christ. Over this time, we have witnessed an amazing transformation of these people from stoic and joyless to fun-loving and spirited. FBCR has also provided medical care as well as financial assistance in the building of a new church there.
FBCR members have travelled to Kenya, Africa for medical mission trips, providing intensive medical and surgical care for an underdeveloped rural area, as well as organizing VBS at local orphanages. We have an ongoing relationship with a church in India, and our members have made multiple trips there to spread the Gospel of Christ. We have also been involved in mission trips to Vietnam, providing both medical care in a rural area as well as resources to help build a Christian school.
FBCR is committed to supporting international missions, and all of our members get involved. Some are called to personally participate and travel to faraway places. Prayer support is crucial, and we actively pray for our mission teams as well as the people and places they serve. Financial support is also important: FBCR supports these projects through the Mission Council as well as special offerings, and mission teams raise much of their support with fundraising activities.
FBCR strongly supports overseas missions and ministries as a way of obeying the Great Commission and spreading the Good News throughout the world.
