Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

If one thing is clear in Scripture, it is this: God is a missionary God. His desire to bless the nations is a thread that is woven from Genesis to Revelation. And if we were to ask for just one proof of this, we need only look to Jesus.

Our twenty-eight missionary families and partners span fifteen different countries across five continents. They are involved in a variety of ministries including church planting, mercy, and medical ministry, reaching the poor, and engaging the intellectual. It is a delight for our church to aid in the work they are doing. We count it an honor to be in fellowship with our brothers and sisters on the front lines of the spiritual battle. As a church family, we engage in a “partnership...of giving and receiving” (Philippians 4:15) with our missionary families. Our prayers and financial support are vital, and we must not let them fail. As the Lord continues to send out laborers into his harvest fields—and some of them from our own congregation—we pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will be glorified.

Frank C. Hill Center

A monthly world mission prayer is held on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 4:00 PM in the center. 

The Center was established to encourage and exhort the members of First Presbyterian Church to grow in their knowledge, prayer, and commitment to the Great Commission, and as a place to encourage missionaries who have been called to be part of taking the gospel to the world.

It is located on the first floor of the Ministry Building (1420 Lady Street).

Dr. Frank C. Hill passed away in July 2016 leaving a legacy of deep commitment to world missions. He had three great passions. One was a desire to see First Presbyterian Church members educated regarding its missionaries and their work. The second was a commitment to short-term missions. He gave himself to medical missions for many years going to a number of countries. The third was a commitment to encouraging missionaries.
