As ambassadors for Christ it is our desire to go into the world to fulfill the great commission defined in Matthew 28:19. We plant spiritual seeds, water seeds that have been sown, or harvest souls for the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men." (Matthew 4:18-20). As we reach outside the walls of the church into the community, we minister to the lost through prayer, encouragement, and sharing of the "good news of the gospel".

The team meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month after the service.

FMF International & JET, Quebec Outreach to Youth, Jeff & Tonda Street
Ministering in the Québec City area since 1997, the Streets have created and developed youth ministry at four area evangelical churches: training leadership and discipling young people. They then successfully turned over the youth ministry to national leadership at each church.
In 2020 the Streets expanded their Youth Ecclesia ministry to the entire French-speaking world (47 countries) in offering free one-month youth ministry counseling & guidance to local churches. They are also developing a program called Project 67 (Based on Deut. 6:7) to help churches disciple parents of school-age children.
After a few years of youth ministry in Québec, the Streets started a Frenchspeaking mission called JET (Jusqu’aux Extrémités de la Terre) -which means “to the ends of the Earth.” This legally recognized charitable organization exists to help Québecois churches become directly involved in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus and in raising up a generation of missionaries who will go out into the harvest.
Since going to Québec, the Streets have organized and/or participated in more than 30 mission trips with more than 400 French Canadians to 15 countries. 100 former participants have gone to Bible School and 21 have gone into full-time ministry.
