Missionaries/Church Planters We Support
The Lebanon Bible Fellowship Church specifically supports fourteen individual missionary families. These include the following foreign and United States missionaries, church planters, and mission board directors.
Missions Within Our Church
We are pleased to have many individuals within our congregation serving the Lord in some missionary capacity, either locally or nationally. Several of our teens also serve as summer missionaries year after year at various camps throughout Pennsylvania. In the past, our teens have served at Pinebrook Bible Conference in Stroudsburg, PA, and Victory Valley Camp in Zionsville, PA (both are ministries of the Bible Fellowship Church denomination).
In addition to these, our church also supports local mission agencies such as the Lebanon Valley Youth for Christ, Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Center, Lebanon County Child Evangelism Fellowship (directed by one of our elders, Ralph Bechtel), and the Lebanon Rescue Mission.
Operation Christmas Child
The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world.
Every Fall, individuals from our church pack shoeboxes full of toys and essential items for children around the world. These boxes are sent to Samaritan’s Purse, which inspects the items and includes a copy of the Gospel with each package. The boxes are then distributed to needy children across the globe. This is a wonderful project for families to do together.

Angel Tree Ministries
Angel Tree is a Prison Fellowship program that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts.
Each year, our church receives a list of families in which one or both parents are incarcerated. Individuals then purchase Christmas gifts for children on the list, using suggestions that are given from the families. Finally, church members visit the family members and deliver the gifts to the children. It is a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Jesus to families that are hurting.
You can support Angel Tree in the Fall by donating gifts, volunteering to visit a family, or through prayer. For more information about Angel Tree Ministries and Prison Fellowship click here.
