OUTREACH

Imagine the impact we could have locally and globally if we all gave God our “yes” and allowed him to use our unique gifts, passions, and experiences to serve others. Whether you have lots of time to volunteer or only a few hours every once in awhile, consider making the kind of difference that only you can make.

It’s part of a much larger Community United For Families initiative. To find out how to become a Safe Families Host Family, a Family Friend, or a Resource Friend, please contact Pastor Dave Konkol.

TRUSTED ORGANIZATIONS FIGHTING HUMAN TRAFFICKING AROUND THE WORLD:

For questions and more information, contact Pastor Dave Konkol.
First Free Global Missions' targets areas are Southeast Asia & Panama. We are having a global impact by reaching some of the most unreached and unengaged people groups in these regions.  We schedule trips for those who want to see and experience first-hand what that looks like.  Most trips take place in January or February and planning/registration begins about 3-6 months prior.

SOUTHEAST ASIA

First Free partners with national leaders who are making an impact for the Kingdom among some of the hardest to reach people on earth in restricted access countries.

Join us for a trip to Southeast Asia to observe how God is using First Free to:
  • Help national believers start businesses that provide jobs and improve the economic condition of their communities and opening doors for them to share the gospel.
  • Provide technical assistance for agricultural projects and businesses to increase food security and reduce malnutrition.
  • Match national business leaders with US business leaders to assist with developing and implementing business plans.
  • Support justice and anti-human trafficking ministries working in some of the darkest places on earth.

PANAMA

First Free partners with YWAM in Panama to reach one of the poorest and most unreached people groups in our hemisphere – the Ngabe.  Our teams have been going to Panama for several years and God has used First Free to make a significant impact.

Come and be a part of what God is doing. You’ll meet local leaders, experience life in the mountains of Panama, and play your part in serving and blessing the Ngabe people. On our last trip we built a home for a Ngabe family, led an Alpha Course, ran a Vacation Bible School, and prepared meals for the poor.
