our ministry leaders

The Bible gives the example of a church being like a body with its many parts. Each part is valuable and essential for the body to function properly.

At FFMC our body certainly has many parts, and here are a few of the people God has gifted to provide leadership in specific areas. We hope you'll get to know them. It will be their joy to serve you in any way that they can.
