Trever and Joan Godard, missionaries sent out from FGCC founded the Matthew Training Center in Guadalajara, Mexico about 15 years ago. The passion of the Matthew Training Center is personal discipleship in the context of cross cultural community.  The goal is to see hundreds of trained and fruitful workers serving among the nations making thousands of disciples in God’s Kingdom for His glory. Trever and Joan have recently retired from their role as directors and are returning to Canada, but we desire to continue our relationship with MTC through an intentional partnership with the remaining staff team and ongoing ministry. We believe God is inviting us to work together to multiply our impact locally and around the world!

We want to introduce you to the staff team of 7 below who have come together from 5 different countries to give leadership. Pray for them as they serve in various ways with their gifts to disciple the churches in Guadalajara and the nations that come to learn at MTC.

Join the Congregations meeting on March 21 to learn more about our partnership goals and partnership recommendation!
