Missionaries in the North Texas Conference

The North Texas Conference supports missionaries affiliated with the General Board of Global Ministries, our denominational mission agency located in New York City.

This agency assigns several missionaries to each region to be supported. If you are interested in becoming a Covenant partner with a missionary, this is possible at an individual, small group, or church level.
