We want to establish and strengthen churches to the glory of God throughout the world in obedience to the Great Commission. “Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.” Psalm 96:3
We want to go into all the world, proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ, make disciples, and compassionately serve the hurting.
Possibilities Africa is a ministry started to equip pastors in rural African communities for holistic transformation of their communities. This is implemented through a plan where Possibilities Africa recruits, equips, and partners with rural pastors and their churches to enable them to provide spiritual leadership for their churches and communities, promote the development of income-generating activities by providing training and seed capital in order to alleviate handouts-generated poverty, and to prepare, through mentorship and discipleship, their children and youth to live holistic Christian lives.

Kingdom Harvest International
KHI fulfills the Great Commission by presenting the gospel and discipling believers in unreached areas of the world. Together with India Campus Crusade for Christ (ICCC), they identify regions of villages where no churches are present. They then assign indigenous teams of two with the responsibility of beginning a church planting movement in their region. Learn more at www.kingdomsharvest.com.
Denise & Luke
Denise and Luke are a part of a team that is convinced that no one should live and die without hearing God’s good news and is working to bring the gospel to the largest ethnic minority in an eastern Asian country. Currently, there is not one known follower of Jesus Christ among this people and no Christian resources in their language. Scattered around a mountainous region in small, isolated villages, this people group observes the animistic Mo religion, believing that spirits are present in everything. Denise, Luke, and their teammates are working to create an enterprise that will allow them to be able to enter the villages and share the good news of Christ.
International Gospel Ministries
Terry and Lorie Lingel oversee International Gospel Ministries. They split their time between their home in Idaho and Mexico, where they bring the gospel to lost people through evangelistic outreaches, support local pastors, and serve the poor.
Eric and his wife Adriana, Mexican nationals, also serve with IGM. A few years ago, Eric was falsely accused and imprisoned for four years and four months. During this time they watched God move in mysterious ways. While the enemy sought to silence the witness of Christ, God worked to bring His Word and the freedom of His salvation to many people imprisoned with Eric.
Peggy Warren serves with New Tribes Mission in Chihuahua, Mexico. NTM is in Mexico to train Latin missionaries, to teach Spanish to missionaries, and to plant self-supporting, reproducing churches among the indigenous people groups of Mexico. They work with local churches, informing them of the need to spread the gospel message in Mexico and around the world.
Lincoln is quickly becoming a global city. Over the past three decades, Lincoln has been a favorite relocation destination for refugees because of its stable job market and family-friendly atmosphere. Represented among these are over twenty ethnic groups without consistent gospel witness in their language, neither in their homelands nor here. We support two couples working full-time to bring the gospel to members of our refugee community. One couple, serving with Christar, is working with Arabic speakers from Muslim, Yazidi, Christian, and Sabean backgrounds. The other is seeking to plant a church among the Middle Eastern and North African population and is also ministering to Persians.
Every Man a Warrior
The goal of Every Man a Warrior is to point men to a growing, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ by helping them develop the skills of spending time with God, understanding His Word and applying His truth into the areas of life that match up with the biblical guidelines of a spiritual leader. In the first year, these small groups of men experience several types of active learning, accountability and application of over 100 key verses in the areas of the Great Commandment, marriage, raising children, finance, moral purity, work, maturing through hard times, and the Great Commission. In the second year, they are equipped and encouraged to apply these skills and biblical principles into the lives of their own small group. EMAW is now in its third year at Faith Bible Church with over 60 men who have experienced the process, many of whom are now doing one-on-one and small groups within their own personal sphere of influence.

Juvenile Justice Ministry
Youth for Christ’s Juvenile Justice Ministry seeks to engage young people as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions. In Lincoln, as many as 800 students pass through the Lancaster Youth Services Center each year. Their hope is to meet these students in a time of significant need and develop a long-term relationship with them when they go back into their communities.
Eldon Dietrich from our church serves as chaplain to the Lancaster County Youth Services Center, visiting the Detention Center Monday through Friday. Learn more at www.yfclincoln.org/ministries/juvenile_justice.
Royal Family Kids Camp
Royal Family Kids Camp ministers to abused and neglected children in the Nebraska foster care system. Nebraska is home to 1,421 children in the foster care system, many of whom have suffered unimaginably at the hands of those who should have loved and protected them. At RFKC, these children experience the love of Jesus through the care of camp volunteers and specially planned camp activities. For some of the children, the week of camp is full of firsts—swimming, fishing, experiencing the love of an adult, and even having a birthday party. Learn more at www.royalfamilykids.org.
Good News Jail & Prison Ministry
Good News Jail and Prison Ministry reaches out to inmates incarcerated in the Lancaster County Correctional Facility. Understanding that real change must occur in the inner person, they take the gospel to inmates so that, though incarcerated, they can find true freedom through Christ.
