The body at Evangelical Free Church seeks to actively participate in the Great Commission by supporting missionaries serving locally, nationally, and internationally. Our commitment is reflected in the goal of allocating almost 10% of the total church budget to the Missions Ministry. We encourage participation in short term mission trips, and we support those from our body who wish to serve long term on the mission field. If you have any questions or an interest in any of the missionaries listed, contact the church office.
