“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. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
With more than 2.7 billion people that have yet to hear the Good News, FEBC’s leadership team works diligently to mobilize 1,000+ workers that serve all around the world.
From the beginning, the hallmark of FEBC has always been to enlist, empower, and release indigenous leadership so that local field offices become autonomous and self-sustaining.

* Due to the sensitive political and religious climate in many of the countries FEBC staff operate in, some photos of our directors and their names have been omitted for their safety, and the protection of the Gospel work being done in the country. Our goal is to be as transparent as possible with you, our partners, while also ensuring we do everything we can to protect the work God is doing through FEBC.
