missions at faith reformed church

to know christ and

to make him known

Although both elements of our Mission Statement are vitally important, we believe the call to "make Him known" deserves to be a priority to which we devote considerable attention.  For that reason, Faith Reformed Church has developed a Missions Committee charged with becoming the communications like between our church family and those ministering outside the walls of our church; those in the Grand Traverse Area, throughout the United States and around the globe.  To find out more about our missions support and efforts, contact:

Below we have listed a roster of those individuals and organizations we support through our giving and by praying faithfully for the continued success of their work.

"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples."
