Forcey Bible Church believes that no church can truly follow God without sharing God’s heart for the whole world.  Forcey has been actively involved in overseas and domestic missionary outreach for almost all of its 90-year history.  Today we support 36 missionary families serving in over 20 countries, including several which are formally closed to missionary activity. Others serve with organizations reaching out to internationals in the U.S., including colleges and universities.

We are not just a “supporting” church, we are a “sending” church.

From time to time, Forcey supported missionaries are faced with unforeseen financial challenges and emergencies. The Missions Team will receive requests from Forcey supported missionaries and will approve disbursement of funds. You can donate to this fund by designating your check to “Missionary Care Fund” and sending it to Forcey Bible Church, 2130 East Randolph Road, Silver Spring, MD 20904 or by using this link: https://forcey.churchcenter.com/giving/to/missionary-care-fund
