Serving Globally

Giving:  Faith Bible chooses to empower our congregation to give to our missionaries directly, through designated giving, instead of the church leadership choosing where to send funds.

You can give to a missionary by writing the amount you want to give in the memo of your check when you place it into our offering slots located throughout the church building or you if you give online, you will designate your gift towards the mission partner(s) of your choice through the drop down menu.

Faith Partners, Inc - Kenya

Faith Partners, Inc., is a Christian ministry that seeks to partner with local churches around the world in carrying out the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) through evangelism and discipleship, pastoral training, and practical service to the most vulnerable of society.

Read More...
Faith Partners, Inc., was launched in 2015, two years after FBC member Scott Brinson began ministering in western Kenya. The name was chosen to reflect the partnership between believers here in the U.S. and our fellow-brethren in Kenya who share a common faith and a common vision of evangelizing the lost, discipling the saved, training local church leaders, and ministering to those most vulnerable and in need -- orphans, widows, and single mothers. To this end, Faith Partners sponsors Shepherds Bible Institute, a two-and-a-half year study program to equip Kenyan pastors and church leaders; ministers to 27 orphans who are without one or both parents; and seeks to assist widows and single mothers in starting their own businesses so that they can provide for themselves and their children. In addition, we conduct open-air evangelistic meetings and Bible classes in public schools.

How to Serve:

  • PRAY for the ministry. If you would like to receive the monthly prayerletter, you can do so via email or regular mail. Contact Scott Brinson if you would like to be added to the mailing list (405-201-6445, or faithpartnersinc@gmail.com).
  • GIVE to the ministry. The primary areas of need include:
    • Funding for Shepherds Bible Institute when classes are in session (room, board, and study materials for the students, staff support, travel expenses);
    • Funding for our Benevolence ministry to provide food, clothing, and health services for those most in need.
    • Funding for the Orphans ministry (to provide for basic needs -- food, clothing, medical and educational needs. You can sponsor an orphan for $25-30 a month;
    • Funding for the Orphanage that will house up to 48 children (construction is about 75% complete);
    • Funding for a Microfinance program to provide small loans to widows and single mothers to assist them in starting their own businesses.
    • Funding for Scott Brinson's personal support.
  • GO with the ministry. As the ministry grows, there will be future opportunities to go with Scott to Kenya and be directly involved in teaching (adults, children, and Bible Institute students) and serving. Stay tuned!

How to Pray:

  • Pray for the growth (spiritually and numerically) of the Kenyan church, and for Pastors Elijah and Albert as they shepherd their local churches and oversee the Faith Partners mission in western Kenya -- that they will faithfully fulfill their calling to feed and lead with wisdom, discernment, love, and perseverance.
  • Pray for God to provide the funding needed to maintain and grow the ministry; specifically, funds to complete the orphanage ($15,000), construct a security wall ($8,000), purchase a ministry van ($20,000) and start a microfinance (small loan) program ($26,000).
