180 Mission Trip – Kenya 2020

FCC   -  

What is this event?

In 2015, our student ministry got the chance to go on a mission trip to Kenya to visit the Barrons, FCC sponsored missionaries. It was a life changing trip for our students. Even now, they bring up with each other, almost five years later. In Kenya, the students got to witness firsthand how big our God truly is and see what it is like to be a missionary, and a Christian, halfway across the world. Now, in 2020, after having the Barrons here on furlough last year, we are ready to take a new set of students to experience foreign missions in the country of Kenya.
