We have very passionate and capable leaders on the front lines in our new churches. Each one is faithfully serving in their respective communities and challenging their flocks in obedience and guiding their ministries to serve in Jesus’ mighty name! In the region we know as Mid America from Minnesota to Texas, people are hearing and responding to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the niche we call Evangelical Friends our common values of lifting the name and fame of Jesus, by loving and serving people in our communities and around the world, we again acknowledge and affirm that we are better together. Our churches are partnering to support ministry and new churches in numerous locations and supporting our mission points and extension churches in various ways as they grow toward maturity and yet they do need our prayers and financial support.
