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.

Turkey is one of the dominant Islamic countries in the world today. It is in a strategically significant location as a land bridge between Europe and the Middle East. It shares its border with Syria and Iraq in the south and Bulgaria in the north. As the former capital of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey is trying to reassert its dominance and influence over its neighbors. This trip will take you to Istanbul (formerly known as Byzantium and Constantinople), the largest city in Turkey. You will visit partners working in Turkey and visit several of the sites of the New Testament Churches like Antioch, Colossae, and Ephesus. This is a trip sponsored by our Women’s Ministry, and we are seeking women to go on this trip who are interested in ministering to missionary wives.

Are you interested in taking your first trip to a foreign country? This trip is for you. Our partners in Stockholm minister within the arts community, so this trip is an opportunity to witness a post-Christian culture where traditional, centuries-old churches and cathedrals represent Christianity, but little in terms of Christian influence. Sweden is a safe and friendly country where English is spoken fluently by most Swedes. This trip is for those interested in participating in the music scene in Stockholm as well as non-musicians interested in learning more about missions in Europe.
