GFC Missions

When we look at the world around us, it’s easy to see that things are not as they should be. There is a huge disparity between those who have and those who have not. As Christians, our job is to go out and bring hope to hopeless situations; to spread the love of Jesus to those who feel unloved. In 2018, GFC will be offering several trips that are sure to put you in a position to do just that.

Choose to change your life and someone else’s this year through Missions!

If you have any questions about Global Missions, please contact us at global@gfconline.com.
