Missions at LAEFC

Jesus said, “(by the Holy Spirit's power) you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8


Our vision, our ultimate goal of missions is to develop fully devoted disciple-makers of Jesus Christ, both locally and globally.


We partner with a number of missionaries at home and abroad and are involved in many mission projects. Please explore this page and find out more about the exciting ways that God is using us to help further His Kingdom.


We encourage you to participate in knowing, living, and sharing the heart of Jesus. To learn more about how you can get more personally involved, please contact David Bauman.

Mission Trips

Here at LAEFC, we encourage followers of Jesus Christ to personally experience and build relationships with other believers, and through word and deed, to help further Christ's Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) locally and globally.


Mission trips can be a wonderful way to encourage and equip other local churches around the world to do just this. We also learn from and are encouraged by others we partner with. We encourage folks to follow God's leading and join other churches or organizational trips or to join one sponsored by LAEFC.
