Sharing God’s Love
The mission of GFC includes reaching out beyond our walls to love others with God’s love. We do so both locally through ministry partners in our community and globally through missionaries and partnerships. We have also adopted “Mountain View Elementary School” and have formed an incredible growing partnership that reaches the kids, their parents, their teachers, and even the surrounding community.
Reaching Our Community
We not only serve our community through our partnership with Mountain View Elementary, but we also serve through programs like Feed the Hungry, which provides lunches once a month to the needy in downtown Johnson City, and Joy Prom which celebrates individuals with disabilities and gives them an unforgettable experience with their caregivers.
We know that we can’t do it alone. That’s why we have a network of partners which provides expertise, concentrated efforts, and open doors for us to join them in addressing specific needs in our community. These ministry partners offer many opportunities for serving locally.
We Love Mountain View
Our partnership with Mountain View serves one of the most economically and educationally challenged areas of our city. Since 2010, we have sought to be an encouragement to the school and community through tangible expressions of God’s love. Our goal is to build trust and relationships with the staff, children, and families through direct support and involvement. Great opportunities are before us and there is much to be done!
Our Local Ministry Partners
Go and Tell
Those who go must be sent. We know that the world is broken, hurting, and in need of God’s love, so we are intentionally a “sending church.” We host international trips, and we work with global partners who express our strategic focus of bringing the gospel to the world.
GFC’s partnership with Compassion International enables us to pursue a significant role in “releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name.”
Over 400 children are sponsored by GFC families through Compassion. Over 120 of these children are from Dios es Amor, our partner church outside Lima, Peru. GFC typically sends a team on a Compassion trip each year, offering sponsors in that country a chance to meet their sponsored child.
PRAY: Pray for the people of Ukraine who are suffering due to war. Ask God to grant wisdom to Ukrainian and world leaders, give protection to those who are in danger, and draw people to faith in him.
DONATE: To make a donation, we recommend supporting the ministries of Restore Ukraine, Cru, or Samaritan’s Purse.
