Missions

GO THEREFORE AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS

MATTHEW  28:19

NCFF partners with missionaries and mission organizations around the globe. Our prayer is to obey what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 and to reach the lost with the good news of the Gospel.
Meet Crissy Christian, NCFF’s volunteer Director of Mission Ministries. And yes, that really is her name! God has gifted Crissy with a passion to help NCFF bring the Gospel to people locally, regionally and internationally (Acts 1:8). She is passionate in her belief that the Church must share the compassion of Jesus to people in physical need so that we can more successfully share the Gospel to people in their spiritual need. Crissy’s goal is to always help others encounter the love of the Lord Jesus and follow Him as their God and Savior. If you would like to know more about missions at NCFF; or if you would like to serve on our “at-home” missions ministry team to help our missionaries through prayer, service & support; or if you like to venture out for God on one of our short term mission trips; or if you have any questions about NCFF’s mission outreach, please contact Crissy Christian by following the link below.
