What is Gospel Ministry?

When Friends travel in the gospel ministry they visit individuals and/or meetings without a predetermined agenda other than to be faithful to listen and to respond to the promptings of the Spirit.

What is the Margaret Fell Fund?

The Margaret Fell Fund was created by FGC to assist monthly meetings who have members who are led to extended travel in the gospel ministry among Quakers (of two weeks or more duration). The Fund’s purpose is to cover costs accrued during extended travel such as mortgage payments, rent, and health insurance. The Fund does not cover transportation costs.
