Spring Break Missions

2019 Prayer Guide

This is the time of year when hundreds of Fellowship students and adults are preparing to embark on outreach trips locally, regionally, and globally to spread the Gospel and make a difference in the lives of others.  As different cultures mesh and relationships form, our goal is to reach the unreached both near and far. For those of us not taking part in these trips physically, we can still be involved… by praying!
