Tentmaking :: Gospel Fellowship Association Missions


Gospel Fellowship Association began a tentmaking program to direct committed Christian professionals to work and ministry on foreign fields. The mission of the tentmaker is to support, encourage, be an example, and help develop a Gospel ministry through evangelim, Bible studies, and in some cases formal Bible teaching. The tentmaker will, in some cases, help pioneer the Gospel ministry in creative access nations.
