International missions has long been a steady heartbeat of Faith Covenant, evidenced by our consistent support of missions and the many missionaries we currently partner with who came directly from our church body. A prayerful team of lay-leaders determines missionary financial support called the GO Team. If you would like to contact or inquire about serving on the GO Team, are interested in mission opportunities, or have general questions, please email the global outreach team.
