Luke 2:10 (NLT), "But the angel reassured them. 'Don't be afraid!' he said. 'I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all nation.'" 


Exodus Fellowship International (EFI) began in 1997 when Bishop Wesley H. Russ started making mission trips to Eastern Europe. It wasn’t long before the Elders realized that a new paradigm for mission’s ministry was being birthed. Members not only wanted to give financially, they wanted to be involved in going to the mission field. Direct congregational involvement is foundational in directing and supporting Maranatha’s missions ministry. Each month members are given opportunity to give, either supporting a child or Pastor involved in national ministry. Exodus has ministries in Romania, India, and the Philippines.
