Outreach and Mission
After Jesus Christ rose from the grave to return to heaven He said to His disciples:
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. - Matthew 28:18b-20 (NIV)
For this reason we want to do what we can to spread the Glad Tidings of Jesus Christ both far and near.
The Good News... Far and near...
In Foreign Mission our church as well as others support the Canadian Reformed Church of Toronto with its mission work in Papua New Guinea. There Rev. S. t' Hart has been at work for some years proclaiming the Gospel. Rev. t' Hart has taken a call to a pastorate in Australia and will soon be leaving the mission field. Other churches in our federation support missionaries and their work in Brazil as well as in West Timor and Papua, Indonesia.
Fellowship Church also supports the work of its 'home' missionaries such as Pastor Jim Witteveen who works among the natives of Northern British Columbia, and Rev. F. Dong who heads an outreach program in the Vancouver area, especially among oriental immigrants
Much closer to home our church is very much involved with the work of Pastor Paul Aasman and Streetlight Ministries a very active outreach program in downtown Hamilton. For more information concerning this program please visit their website.
Fellowship Church is also home to the Togeretz family. While they are away in Indonesia we support their work flying missionaries and mission aid workers bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of Indonesia. While we don’t see them often they are never far from our thoughts and prayers.

Short-term mission work...
Faithworks is an organization in the midst of our churches whose goal is to show Christian assistance, generosity, charity, mercy and kindness towards the poor out of thankfulness for the great salvation we have been granted in Jesus Christ. We do this by way of organizing short-term mission trips to various impoverished areas of North America.
