Preschool Missions Focus

For Columbus Worship Service


Mission Friends is an ongoing missions discipleship organization for preschool boys and girls (birth through kindergarten). Through Mission Friends, preschoolers . . .

  • become aware that God wants everyone to know of His love
  • move from a focus on self to a focus on others
  • apply Bible thoughts to their lives as they learn to pray, give, and help others.
  • and their families learn of ways to give their time, talents, and money

Missions Focus November 2017 

Missions Area: Columbus, Ohio | Concept Area: God | Missionaries: Brian and Heidi Frye

5 Fun Facts about the Missionaries

  1. The Fryes live in Delaware, Ohio, and have 3 sons: Ian and twins, Scott and Connor.

  2. Mr. Frye loves to participate in triathlons, which are races where you run, swim, and bike.

  3. The Fryes hope to see 47 new churches at Ohio State University. If they do, there will be one church for every 1,000 college students.

  4. The Fryes know 2 young children who help minister to college students. One goes on regular missions trips with college students while the other helps set up the room where a weekly Bible study is held.

  5. One of the best ways that the Fryes have found to minister is by throwing a party for college students. The students like to get together, share a meal, and talk with one another. The Fryes like to use these parties to teach the students about God.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray that God will guide more people to teach college students about God.

  • Pray that every new college student would hear about God’s love.

  • Pray that God would get college students excited about going to church.

  • Pray that the Fryes’ sons would love God with all their hearts.

Missions Area: Student Ministry in Ohio

Brian and Heidi Frye live in Delaware, Ohio, where they help plant churches for college students across the state of Ohio. Although they help plant college churches all over the state of Ohio, they also help other church leaders plant churches on college campuses in the United States and Canada.

College campuses are filled with people who believe in different things. Some don’t even believe that God is real or that God loves them. The Fryes try to show those who don’t know God that He loves them. They also help teach others how to share God’s love at colleges.
