Missions

"Go ye therefore and make disciples of all nations"

As our Pastor Sam Sears states, “The Fountain cares about one thing more than anything else: Jesus Christ. The Fountain is a family of individuals who have found hope in Jesus and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom. We are thankful to serve as the vessel through which the living water of Jesus flows.”

The Missions team is responsible for maximizing the effectiveness of 10% of the church’s offerings to share this hope in Jesus through local, national and world mission organizations and missionaries. Special offerings may be taken during the year for visiting missionaries, major disasters, or other specific mission needs.

Individuals and families are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways: mission trips, local mission outreach and service, serving on local mission boards, providing financial support and prayer. Our youth and children (AWANA and VBS) also participate in mission projects. Please prayerfully consider ways you could share Jesus’ love and grace to those in need, in addition to your prayers and financial support. Please keep all of our missionaries and mission organizations in your prayers!
