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.

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.
