Global Outreach Team
The G.O. Team is a conduit between the missionaries in the field and the church body.

This expands the gospel globally for God's glory! Those needs can include spiritual, physical, and ministry needs. We welcome volunteers to assist us in these two areas:
- Mission Education - Mission education will primarily involve the promotion, attendance, and development of lectures, conferences, and short term cross cultural ministry and missions trips.
- (MIF) Missionaries In the Field Candidate Investment - The root of this ministry team is discipleship. We want to send and prepare well, those who look to be "Goers" and World Christians. Developing a semi-formal program will help those that God is speaking to and will help Fellowship send prepared individuals and families into His Field. (Coordinator: Spencer Hoyt) Learn more here...
