OUR MISSIONARIES

 

The Free Methodist Church was formed in 1860 and in 1881 Ernest Fremont Ward became the first FM foreign missionary, serving Christ with his wife and three daughters in India. Since then FM missions has spread around the world, with missionaries now serving in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. You can learn more about this work at the FM Missions website: http://fmcusa.org/fmmissions/

Northgate Church is committed to participating in world missions in a variety of ways.   Currently we are focusing our efforts in two world areas: Northern Europe and Gahanda, Rwanda. You can learn more about our work in these places here… (webpage)

In addition we support financially and prayerfully those called to long-term mission work in other areas of the world. In order to help you know who we support and the work that they are doing, we are providing these links to their webpages.

  • Every year around Thanksgiving time we take a special offering in addition to our regular offering, one-third of which is used to support FM World Missions, with a second third going to various local organizations serving people’s needs, and the final third used for a capital project here at Northgate that will allow us to do our best to serve our local community. To see how we’ve used this offering in the past, go here…

GAHANDA, RWANDAMARCH 2018

We’ve begun a new missional relationship with the village of Gahanda in Rwanda through International Child Care Ministries. We began by offering people the opportunity to sponsor children in Gahanda through ICCM and to date we’ve sponsored nearly 70 children!

HUNGARYFEBRUARY 2018

July of 2016 was a special month for Northgate as we made our first international mission trip in many years. A team of seven people spent almost a year preparing to go to Gyor, Hungary to serve with missionary Gerry McNamara at an orphanage there. The orphanage is government run, but the directors allow Gerry and his family to visit weekly and meet with the children and youth and help with education, recreation and socialization.
