Ted and Sandy Ball
The Ball family is both current and former GFF missionaries, having served with the Fellowship in the 1980s & 1990s, and then serving in another ministry for twelve years before returning to the Fellowship. They have been active church planters all of their adult lives, having planted six churches in the United States during their years of ministry. Ted has also found time to be involved in the Pastorate as well.
Since their return to GFF, Ted has been serving as Assistant Director. He and Sandy are now taking a lateral transfer, with a different focus. Although Ted & Sandy are retirement age, they do not want to retire (they would do more work if they could). It is now time for them to leave the demanding job as Assistant Director to assume a less–demanding role. They still intend to recruit new missionaries, help with church planting (and new church–planters), as well as be extensively involved in mission correspondence and encouraging our GFF missionaries. They will do it in a consultant role, which physically requires less. Full retirement is not for them!

3. Edifying of Believers
4. Establishing of Local Churches
5. Educating Church Leadership
6. Extending Ministries

G.F.F. is trusting the Lord for His choice of saved, dedicated
workers with the following interests to help build church
Pastors Bible Institute Teachers
Bible Teachers Children's Workers
Evangelists Youth Ministers
Church Planters Linguists/Translators
CURRENTLY WE NEED:
People who are burdened to reach the lost, discipling them
in individual or small group Bible studies that could lead
to new churches being established on all our current fields
or on new ones as the Lord leads.
institute/college teachers for established schools in Africa
either in English or the local language.
missionaries (who might be retired) or pastors could be
used either short term or longer to represent G.F.F. ministries

They could also be used to teach in one of our English (language)
