International Ministries

We are blessed to support international ministries, including several Blacknall members, with prayer and financial contributions (see below for a complete list). There are also various opportunities to participate in short-term missions around the world. Contact Chad Weinard with the International Ministry Team for more information.

Fellows in Missions

The International Missions Team is excited to help Blacknall members and regular attenders who are hoping to engage in short-term missions. Whether following a call to a particular place, with a particular group or just following a call to serve, we want to partner with you to help you have a fruitful experience. The application deadline for Summer 2013 Fellows is now closed. If you’re interested in learning more about Fellows in Missions, please contact Craig and Rachel Frey.
