It is our hope to see people progress through our three stages of involvement. Once they get a burden for missions, they begin to pray and that is always step 1. Next that should lead to people getting involved in projects...that is step 2. Finally, for some, this will be a natural progression to step 3...participation. Not everyone is called to take a mission trip overseas. But for those who do want to experience the mission field, Friends of the Gospel would love to help make that a reality. We want to see people participate in taking short-term and long-term mission trips. If it is done right, mission trips can be incredibly beneficial.
