The Mentoring Partnership

Change the World as a Mentor

Why do ordinary Christ followers sacrifice their precious time, emotional capital, and resources to serve as mentors? They want to change the world – changed lives, change worlds. A mentor is a caring adult willing to devote time to young people to encourage healthy, positive growth socially, emotionally, educationally, physically and spiritually.

Mentoring at its core, guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them and assures them that they are not alone in dealing with the day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. A mentor from Fellowship Bible Church is an Ambassador of Christ in an increasingly difficult world.

Mentors spend an hour a week with their mentee at the mentee’s school through the school year. The hope is that the mentee can continue the relationship year after year, giving the relationship time to grow and flourish.

Invest and hour a week
and change a life for eternity!

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Here at Fellowship, we want to be fully engaged in meeting the needs of the people around us. We want to take action in our community in response to the challenge Jesus gave to all believers; to love their neighbor and their neighborhood. We want to be actively involved with sharing good news and good deeds.

Join us in our desire to ignite a passion for the lost in the life of every believer. Develop a craving in your own life to be salt in the world, always seeking opportunities where you can help fulfill the needs of our city and surrounding communities. Impact and influence the community with the light of Christ by taking His light from INSIDE the walls of Fellowship Bible Church OUT to the community.

47 Tons

FoodShare started in 2013 with the idea that food insecurity is just as real in February as in November and December. Most food drives happen around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but hunger is year-round. Since then, Fellowship Bible Church has hand-delivered food boxes to over 1600 households – that's approximately 47 tons of food! Year after year, hundreds of people from FBC have made FoodShare a successful outreach to our community. Our partnerships with Winchester Public Schools, The Rescue Mission, The Laurel Center, and Winchester Social Services continued to flourish and strengthened because of that effort.

As impressive as the numbers are, the impact of lives changed is far more notable and why FoodShare continues to grow each year. Attached to every food box is a copy of the Gospel of John in English and Spanish. Beyond filling hungry stomachs, we hope that the good news touches the hearts of those who read it. "My word which goes out of My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the purpose for which I sent it." Isa 55:11
Last year we received this thank you from one of the FoodShare box recipients. "Thank you so much for the box of food! We needed food, and I wasn't sure how I would buy it. That food came at the right time." Another recipient left a message on the church answering machine minutes after receiving the box. "I can't thank you enough for the blessing of this food. We appreciate it so much." One of our delivery teams was invited into a recipient's home, where they witnessed the family's children opening the food box. "You would have thought it was Christmas how the kids were running around so excited!"

As it is with most ministry opportunities, the blessing goes both ways. Countless parents have taken family shopping trips to buy groceries and to teach their children about the reality of poverty. Several people join the delivery team every year because of the joy it is to give a tangible gift like food and an eternal gift of the gospel.
FoodShare boxes are available through February, and delivery of those boxes is always on the first Saturday of March.

Be a part of something great.

Use your Spirit-given gifts to serve.

Every single person whom God has called to Himself through Christ has been given a gift to use in the Church. You are valuable to God. Throughout the year we have opportunities for you to use those gifts in service to our community. Take a look at what's coming up and see how you can be involved.
