Short-Term Missions at First EFC

We are convinced that local churches send out missionaries. With that said, we desire to send and support all of our missionaries well. Here's an overview of our application process for short-term missions/service projects and how we intend to help prepare and support those we send:

1. Submit the online "Declaration of Interest" form, linked at the bottom of this page (Preferably by November 30, 2017 or ASAP)

2. Submit the First EFC Short-Term Mission/Service Project Application that will soon be provided to you by the missions committee (Deadline: April 8, 2018...but the sooner, the better!)

3. Complete an interview with the missions committee, receive coaching feedback, and be approved for your trip/project (Complete this step before you apply to a missions agency/ministry organization)

4. Complete the application for your approved missions agency/ministry organization (Deadlines vary)

5. Prepare by completing any training through your agency and by involvement in church body life and ministry, acting on any coaching feedback provided by the missions committee

6. Go and serve! (Keep us up to date with prayer requests whenever possible so we can better pray for your ministry)

7. Return and share with the First EFC body about your ministry experience so we can praise God together! (August "Missions Night" and in other appropriate groups)

8. Reinvest in First EFC by putting into practice what you learned and the gifts you've honed through this process, and continue to follow the Lord's leading in future service
