Meet our Missionaries

main image

Missionaries do amazing things. More accurately, God does amazing things through them. First Baptist Church supports the work of our members on faith missions, and also partners with Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) in global missions. We have put together a list of our missionaries to help you get to know them better and pray for their family and work!
