BeSent Celebration

October 25 - 29, 2023

BeSent Celebration is an opportunity for FBC to bring 13 mission partners and church planters on campus to love, support, and encourage. By creating a culture of missional living within our church family, we hope to multiply missions opportunities in our church.


Thank you for supporting our BeSent Celebration and our missionaries. The gifts given to this offering will be used to support our missionaries as well as mission efforts in their community. God will use your gifts to strengthen His Kingdom.
