Missions

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..."

One of our main priorities at First MB is to engage in missions. We believe having a worldwide perspective helps us understand God and our place in His world. 

Hey, I'm Jana.

We believe we understand God and His heart for us much better when we serve and explore the world. We don't go "over there" to simply paint walls or watch children; we know we are the ones who are changed after mission trips, and we want our hearts to align more and more with God's heart for His children around the world.

Meet  Our  Missionaries.

We are proud to support workers in Thailand, France, Southeast Asia,
Mexico, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Burundi/Congo. 


Nasser al'Qahtani

North Africa/Middle East

Nasser serves on Multiply's Global Lead Team, leading mission development in the Middle East and North Africa. In these regions, the Gospel is violently opposed and following Jesus comes at great personal cost. Because of Nasser's testimony of salvation from Islam to Christ, he is uniquely equipped to train Christians in effective outreach to Muslims, presenting the Scriptures from a Hebraic/Eastern worldview.

Some of our missionaries serve in restricted access countries,

so their names and photos are withheld for security reasons. They still need our prayers, though, and God knows their names!
