In November 2020, Faith Community Church embarked
upon a new ministry opportunity -- to support Mike and
Ginger Greene and their ministry team in Pavana,
Honduras that allows North Americans to work alongside
local Honduran churches in bringing glory to Jesus Christ.
Our involvement began through the support of Barbara
Krauss. It is her heart's desire to provide families in
Honduras with the gospel and a home to live. We have
created a fund in Barb's honor to support missions in
Honduras. This fund supports the Green's ministry to
provide short-term mission trip opportunities for teams to
be witnesses for Jesus Christ, while building homes for
Honduran families. The people and families they help are
usually living in housing that is either adobe, stick built, plastic, or they do not have a home at all. As ministry leaders, the Greens validate property ownership prior to the ministry team constructing a home, and partner with Honduran churches and members of the community along the way. The cost for a team to build a home is $3,000, which includes all materials to build a block home with a concrete floor, roof, 2 doors, and 2 windows. Contact us to get more information on how to support this ministry, or to organize a team and join us in building a home for a Honduran family.

In June of 2019, Faith Community
Church began to support Mike and Kathy McKeever as recruiters for
Wycliffe Bible Translators. Mike had worked for Wycliffe Bible Translators for 14 years previously, and in 2019 returned as a recruiter. Mike said, "I can think of no greater use of my time, talent and experience than to serve those in this world that need the Word of God in a language they understand." Kathy was born and raised in Geneva. Wycliffe Bible Translators USA is a diverse, caring community dedicated to helping people around the world translate the Bible so they can understand and apply God’s life-changing message. Their desire is to love God and love people as they put their skills and talents to work for eternal impact. Everyone deserves access to God’s Word. You’re invited to join a movement of global proportions — so that all people will have the opportunity to discover Jesus and be transformed through Scripture they understand! You can partner with Mike and Kathy by keeping them in your prayers. Donations can be made through Faith Community Church.
Faith Community Church in Pakistan:
In May 2020, Faith Community Church embarked upon a
new ministry opportunity -- to support Shumaila Yousaf
and her ministry team in Okara, Pakistan bring the gospel
message of Jesus Christ to children in the village of 11-4L.
This ministry began through the support of the late David
Balistreri. It was in his heart to provide the children of
Pakistan with the gospel and food. We have created a fund in David's memory to support missions in Pakistan. More than a monthly Sunday School program, Shumaila also
provides them with a hot meal. Our partnership has
expanded to include supplying the children with Bibles.
Periodically, we provide support for a full Christian service that includes the adults in
the village. They all get the
opportunity to hear praise and
worship, preaching and a hot meal.
This is only the beginning of our
journey. Working with Shumaila and
her team in Pakistan, our future plans
include providing much needed clothing,
shoes, toiletries and fresh water.
Our vision is to build water filtration
and treatment facilities for 11-4L
and create greater educational
opportunities for children to bring
them out of poverty and give them
a brighter future. This could include
building a school and creating an
education fund. We hope you will join
us in the journey!

Faith Community impacts the world through the efforts of our indigenous global partners who are multiplying disciples and meeting spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of our brothers and sister in third world countries through various community development initiatives as church planting, refugee care, child sponsorship, pastor training / equipping, delivering fresh water, business development, education, and more.
Few countries can match the cultural diversity of Papua New
Guinea, whose 7 million people speak more than 800
languages, and live mostly in rural, indigenous communities.
Bill and Jen Morlang have been serving there since 2009 as
part of Ethnos360. Bill is the son of Julie Bates. Bill and Jen
both love the physical aspect of missions – building, supply
buying, managing guesthouse. They are trusting God to use
their lives and willing hearts to build His church. As for their
ministries in Papua New Guinea, Bill and Jen do whatever
the Lord brings their way! They find that this is the safe
answer 🙂. Bill and Jen know that they can say that they are
going to help with building and maintenance and help with the
guest home, but they know that it can be so much more than that. Bill and Jen desire
to build relationships with the people there and see them come to know the Lord. They hope to fill any gaps that the Lord opens up for them. Bill and Jen know that by His strength, grace and wisdom they need to be open to a variety of ministries. Please support them. They are asking for our prayers and if possible, financial assistance. If your heart is moved by their work and you would like to make a donation, you can do so by clicking on the title and visit their bio page on Ethnos360. Or you can make a donation through Faith Community Church.
