Welcome to the Global Ministry of First Assembly. Our purpose is to connect our church community with our supported evangelization and discipleship work overseas. This connection is a ‘two way street’, allowing information to flow from us to overseas workers and back again. Knowing that the church is actively involved in the prayer, financial support and ministry needs overseas is a great comfort to those serving in other countries. This page will communicate current activities, praise reports, prayer requests, ministry needs and ways for you to get involved.
Mapela, South Africa
First Assembly has made a 4 year commitment to the villages in and around Mapela to labor together to reach children, youth, adults and families with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe this is accomplished with both Words and Works. We have traveled to Mapela several times a year to establish relationships, work with the local church and community leaders, evangelize and disciple believers, and help develop economic ideas and opportunities for community members. We have seen a number of successes to date, including establishing after school programs in two primary schools, regular ministering opportunities in several secondary (high) schools and the start of a chicken farm business. Visit this page regularly for updates on the work in Mapela!
