ONE MISSIONOUTREACH MISSION PARTNERS
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."
Jesus calls each of us to follow Him, to be changed by Him, and to be about His mission – reconciling a lost world to God through Christ Jesus. This is our mission. We do this, not of our own power, but through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. We do this wherever we go – with our neighbors in our community, as we travel throughout this country, and as we leave our borders to take the message of the Gospel to distant lands. One Mission – yours, mine, ours – every day, every where.
If you are interested in participating in one of our upcoming mission trips, let us know!

2. Joy Club International: The FNC Uganda base camp is surrounded with impoverished children of all ages who are yearning for the love of Jesus. This ministry meets every Wednesday and is focused to create an environment where the children of Kamwokya are loved and accepted. Joy Club International accomplishes this through songs of praise, Bible lessons, crafts, snacks, and small group time.
3. World Changers: World Changers is FNC's teen ministry. This group is led by three amazing young men, Derick, Charles and Quinto. All three have been with us from the beginning, saw the need for “their” age and went for it. The World Changers meet every Saturday evening.
4. FNC Academy: The FNC Academy began with a simple letter written by an underprivileged little girl named Christine. Through her boldness and written words, God made it clear we needed to begin not only to teach the love of Jesus, but to show the love by educating, clothing and feeding His children.
