Under the direction of Dr. Silas Johnson, the Missions outreach of Full Counsel Church brings hope to the hopeless around the world. We at Full Counsel take the mission of the Great Commission to the nations. We follow Christ's example by meeting the needs of people so they might gain a saving knowledge of him. Having been empowered by the Spirit (Acts 1:8), sustained by prayer (Acts 13:3), and called out (Romans 10:15), we follow Christ and contribute to local, state, national and international missions. We want to see God's Kingdom advanced and we mobilize and join forces to see the Great Commission carried out.
We accomplish this through short-term missions team trips. A short-term team trip takes you on a 10 to 14 day overseas journey. You will provide critical assistance as you work alongside our long-term missionaries, their staff, and local community members to make a lasting impact in a hurting community.
While serving on a team, you will have the opportunity to minister to needy families within communities. Short-term teams supply the physical as well as the spiritual needs by developing close-knit, personal relationships amongst the many men, women, and children. And as so many others have discovered, when you participate in Christian missions, God blesses you through the children and families to whom you bring His love.
WE WILL GUIDE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!
Full Counsel allows you to be a part of an organized team of believers equipped to spread the Gospel. Our short-term team representatives will partner with you to provide you everything your group needs for a transforming life-changing experience. Representatives will assist you in project selection, travel arrangements & logistics and safety-preparedness.

Don't wear jewelry (watch & wedding bands are okay) on the street; this could tempt someone of a wrong spirit. Also, dont take purses or valuable items.
Always be on time. Being on time is very important. Remember, if one is late it makes everyone late.
Tracts should always be given out.
Smile and show yourself friendly.
Keep your hand out of your pockets; this is very important, in troublesome areas. In cooler seasons, bring gloves or mittens.
Don't touch or poke the person you are witnessing to. After conversion a proper hug can be given, if appropriate.
Don't argue with anyone; only pick ripe fruit.
Stay in the area of the anointing. Don't go into homes, bars, or into dark alleys where we cant see you. Use Godly wisdom. We dont want anyone to get hurt in any form.
Don't wander off by yourself; Jesus sent them out two by two or three. You need to be in groups of two or three. New people need to be with experienced people.
Personal address and phone numbers are not to be given out on the street. We will give address of the local church.
Don't give out money while witnessing. In proper situations you may buy them food. Don't buy items they can take back and receive cash to use for drugs, alcohol, etc.
Once the person has received Jesus as their Lord and Savior, encourage them to find a local church. When someone is witnessing don't interrupt or distract the person being witnessed to. Quietly pray until you are asked to help.
