The Lord Jesus both modeled ministering to all people groups he came into contact with and called his followers to go therefore and make disciples of all nations and here at First, our desire is to follow His commands and seek out and minister in His name wherever He leads.
Depending on your passion, there are several opportunities to plug into the 3 main areas of mission’s here at First: Local, North America, and foreign missions. We also have many ongoing mission organizations that either work out of our church or that we partner with to serve the needs of the people in these three areas.
Plus, we also mobilize when special needs arise such as disaster relief efforts. The Lord has called us all to be ministers in His name, come join us bring the hope of Christ to all who would hear.
In Matthew 9:37-38 Jesus said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” We desire to be hard workers in God’s harvest field. That simply means living our lives on God’s mission. As God brings the harvest of new disciples, new churches are needed.
Our Church Planting Ministry seeks to establish new churches who themselves have a vision from the beginning to plant new churches. It’s how the story of Jesus spread in the first century and the same is true today for our city, nation, and world. We are currently working to establish new churches in Ecuador, Calgary, and right here in the DFW. We are also exploring new possibilities in Washington DC and even overseas.
International Friends at FBC Grapevine first began in 2002. Increasing numbers have come to International Friends in Grapevine to learn conversational English. They have met new friends and have learned about American customs, as well as customs in other countries. Volunteers, who are native English speakers, provide ESL classes and learning activities. They also offer a Citizenship class, craft classes, cooking classes, and bible classes. American holidays are enjoyed!
