EXTENDING HIS GLORY . . .
Among the Nations
EFCC's Global Outreach Ministry
Emmanuel Faith Community Church believes God has called us as a church family to "make disciples among all peoples" (Matthew 28:19). Global Outreach exists to develop and mobilize people from our church family for global service and to serve in partnership with His global church. Please watch this short video that gives an overview of our ministry.
EFCC presently supports global outreach workers in various countries around the world. While we are committed to aiding the church in places where it is already established and emerging, our primary focus is on those places and people groups where the Gospel has not yet been widely made known.
Supporting Our Global Outreach Workers
We support Global Outreach workers in a variety of ways. The provision of financial resources has long been a primary avenue made possible by the generous giving of our members. In addition, informed and regular prayer by individuals, families, and other groups is a key component of our partnerships. Sometimes we come alongside them by sending teams of short-term volunteers.
Our church family also seeks to provide affordable housing for our workers when they come to Escondido on home assignment. At any given time there are several families living and serving among us. Through such personal interaction deeper relationships are grown and broader understanding and vision for their ministry is developed.
