Partners in Mission

The Family of Christ Board of Elders (BOE) requested input from the congregation as to which mission organizations you are passionate about and how they fit with the Vision/Mission of FOC. We received many recommendations for amazing ministries that FOC can partner with.

Below is a snapshot of those ministries as well as their website (if applicable). We encourage you to learn more about these mission organizations and invite you to stay up-to-date on their work by signing up to receive newsletters or digital/mail communications.

Mission Partner Program

During the 2021 budget discussions for Family of Christ, a percentage of the giving received by FOC has been allocated to support Missions. The management of the funds and overall program is assigned to the FOC Board of Elders (BOE). The BOE appointed a small subcommittee of three Elders to lead the Mission Partner Program. The BOE has established 3 areas of focus:

Local Missions/Outreach – Organizations within our local geographical area
Rocky Mountain District/Missouri Synod – Mission/Outreach opportunities within the greater Rocky Mountain District or LCMS as a whole
National/International missions – Any other Mission/Outreach opportunities that do not fit within the previous two categories

With that in mind, the BOE needs your help. We know of many great Mission opportunities out there but do not want to limit our potential mission partners simply because we don’t know about them. As such, we have set up a form that you can fill out to provide the BOE with background information about any Mission opportunity that you are passionate about. If you have an opportunity you would like to recommend, take a moment to complete the Mission Partner Program form. Please reach out to your Elder if you have any questions about our Mission Partner Program at Family of Christ.
