What’s up with the Chinese Ministries at First Free?

As pastor of Outreach Ministries I’ve had the privilege of getting to know a few of the leaders and I think it would be helpful if I explained their vision for ministry and how our Chinese friends have chosen to worship and serve at First Free.

Prayer for Missions and Missionaries
