At First Family, we embrace the mission left to us by Jesus by 1) planting churches 2) partnering with others, and 3) powerfully witnessing as individuals. These three thrusts comprise the bulk of our outreach strategy.

Currently, FFC’s missionaries and partnerships include those in areas both unreached (pioneer regions) and reached (mobilizing regions), but for security reasons we do not list any of our GO partners on this site. If you’d like to know more about our GO partners, please to contact us.
