Did you know that Houston’s First Baptist Church supports over 100 global worker units serving with many different organizations – all over the world?
Would you like to be a part of a unique way to participate in the Great Commission?
We all have a crucial role to play - God’s heart, and His plan, is to reach every nation, tribe and tongue with the gospel and to unite all peoples in Christ.
Missionaries are flesh and blood just like each of us. They struggle the same way we do in many areas of life – only their struggles are often magnified by security risks, health, exposure to different cultures and languages, and isolation from their loved ones and support networks.
GO Global Care is a loving community of support for our Global Workers. And the Missionary Care Team exists to provide Connection, Care, and Community for the Christian family of Global Workers – whether they are on the field or at home.
“…because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
— Philippians 1:5-6
“I rejoice in the Lord greatly that once again you renewed your care for me.”
— Philippians 4:10
Wherever God has placed the Global Worker, we recognize and appreciate their service and sacrifice in bringing the gospel message to the world.
