Many Christians use this term to describe socializing with their fellow Christians. Mormons, however, use it to describe the act of being friendly with nonmembers or new members as a way of doing mission work. An example of its usage: “Fellowshipping investigators (investigators = mission prospects) also has an effect on the quality of teaching” (Giles H. Florence Jr., Ensign, June 1991, p. 14).
