From its early beginnings, Leighton Church has been very mission-minded. One of the first missionaries the church supported was Dr. McBride who served in Sierra Leone. Since those days, we have supported many missionaries and mission organizations. We have also seen several from our congregation become missionaries to various parts of the world.
Today we support 15 missionary families around the world and 10 mission organizations through Faith Promise, which is a pledge between an individual and God to support missions through the coming year over and above their tithe.
People in the following countries are touched by missionaries supported through Faith Promise.
