Mission Trip Support (2018)

Mission Trips

The past year at Fairview Baptist Church has been inspiring for many reasons! God has been so gracious to us as a church family. One of the most exciting developments in the life of our church family has been the intentional strengthening of partnerships with church planters and missionaries. This means that we will be taking more mission trips, more often, with more people. I would love your support in order to go on several of these trips.

Mission Trip to Hungary (July 7-16): In Hungary, our team will lead an English Bible Camp in a local school in partnership with Alicia Jones, a Fairview church member who serves as a full-time missionary in the area. During this week-long camp, I will be teaching the Bible and explaining the gospel to hundreds of students. We will also have the opportunity to visit and encourage Christians among the Roma people group. Support for the Hungary trip is due by May 7th, 2018. The cost for each participant is $1,975.

Mission Trip to New York City (July 29-31): In New York, our team will serve alongside NAMB church planters Edwin Pacheco at Redemption Church in Brooklyn and Eric Hoke at All Saints Church in the Bronx. We will be leading sports camps, student tutoring camps, serving the elderly in the community as well as a variety of different activities that will support the mission of these churches to minister the Gospel to their communities. Support for the New York trip is due by May 13th, 2018. The cost for each participant is $500.

Mission Trip to Southeast Asia (October): In Southeast Asia, we will be working alongside a family that we sent out from our church over a year ago. The details of this trip are yet to be worked out, however, it is possible that we will be distributing books and teaching English in a local school. The cost for each participant will probably be around $1,500.

Will you consider supporting me in these mission efforts?

First, you can participate in prayer. A prayer-less mission team cannot effectively reach the lost or encourage other believers.

Second, as you pray, some of you may also want to help financially. I am praying that God will raise up a group of people to help offset a portion of the total cost. Would you prayerfully consider giving? A gift of $50, $75, $100, or more would be extremely helpful!

If you do decide to assist, there are two ways to give:

Give by Check: support checks should be made out to Fairview Baptist Church with one of the trips or persons in the memo line, and be mailed to 5608 Ten Ten Road, Apex NC 27539.

Give Online: You can also give online at fairviewchurch.org/give. If you give online, make sure you note my name and the trip in the comments section.

All gifts are tax deductible. Also note, if any individual on the team raises more support than needed, the surplus will be used to offset others on the team or to help with ground costs during the trip. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
