Welcome Message from Missionary Melissa Fields Coordinator of International Junior Missionary Unit
WHO ARE WE
The International Missionary Department was created for the purpose of aiding The Church of our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc., as an organism, to perpetuate the doings of the saints in the beginning of the church; that is, to make an opportunity for missionary women to be helpers together with our ministers and pastors in bringing souls to Christ, and comfort to those in need; to visit the widows, orphans and sick, give Godly counsel in the fear of God, and teach the younger women to be chaste keepers at home and so walk, shunning the very appearance of evil, that the Gospel be not blasphemed. Additionally, our purpose is to labor together with the brethren in establishing churches and spreading this truth, as those women in the churches of old were helpers of Paul.
The International Junior Missionary Unit of the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc., consists of an invaluable and precious group of young women, set apart for work in harvesting souls. These are women that are working to prove themselves: faithful, obedient, and spiritually qualified to hold a missionary license. The Junior Missionaries is a group of young women that must be trained in the ways of apostolicism, holiness and service. These women represent the future of the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc.,
The junior missionary is preparing to become a social missionary. She must work at least 2 years with the missionaries before obtaining a social license and can only be appointed by the Pastor.
