At Bend Christian Fellowship we believe that the good news is just that: Good News.
Mark 16:15 says, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Jesus himself is asking us to lay down our personal goals, travel plans and conveniences to seek his kingdom first. We believe that process starts with our home town Bend, Oregon and continues on into every continent, culture and people. In Acts 1:8, Jesus once again encourages us and equips us with power to be a witness wherever we go.
Our Missions History
In 2014, BCF sent a team to Ireland where they ministered to 3 churches in Portlaoise, Carlow and Hacketstown. There were plenty of projects including revamping and installing the sound system in two of the churches. Their time was full of preaching, prayer walking and men’s and women’s meetings. BCF also hosted a tri-tip BBQ [...]
This long awaited trip was a major success and a dream come true for Bend Christian Fellowship. We had the opportunity to visit multiple ministries, churches and individuals in southern Ireland. We visited Portloaise Family Worship Centre, Hacketstown Christian Center and Lighthouse Church in Navan. We took on some hard work projects, had several home [...]
On this trip 10 of us drove down to Mexico preparing meals and performing a quality puppet show in Spanish. We visited men’s and women’s drug rehabs, four different orphanages and multiple churches, one of which was located in the Tijuana dump. We also took on some painting projects at the orphanage, Door of Faith.
With half the team flying and half driving we decided to meet up in San Diego before crossing the border into Mexico. 22 of us spent a week at Foundation for His Ministries serving those at the mission, going on adult and child outreaches and encouraging those serving in full time ministries. 11 of us [...]
4twelve youth group loaded up the van, pointed south, and took off on a 2500 mile road trip of a lifetime. Two days later, 14 of us arrived in Mexico and we helped build the walls for the expansion of the Bible College, plastered new dorms, and of course, dug a lot of ditches.
22 people packed their bags and headed south for yet another action packed trip. We built a new roof for the staff lavatories and laundry facility, prepped a foundation for a new school building, and encouraged migrant worker camps through prayer, games and the gospel along with daytime children’s outreaches.
Once again, BCF took a team to serve at this mission in Mexico. The team of 22 had a great time serving at Foundation for His Ministries mission in Vicente Guerrero. Some of the things that we assisted the mission with were: renovating a beach house that is used by the orphanage's "dorm parents", providing [...]

In July of 2001, we teamed up with a few friend churches and sent out two separate teams, one to chine and the other to Thailand. In China, we once again were involved in teaching English and sharing the Gospel with the students at Jiading No. 2 High School in Shanghai. On the Thailand team, [...]
