Men's Minsitry

Our Men’s Ministry meets once a month for the purpose of equipping men to grow in the four spheres of discipleship (God, family, church, and the world).  Men are encouraged to bring their sons and grandsons with them to our meetings.  The virtues and character traits from 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1:5-9, and Titus 2:2 serve as the core discipleship goals for men at GFC. It is our desire, by the  power of the Holy Spirit, that our church be filled with men who are increasingly:

  • Faithfully loving, serving, and leading their wives
  • Diligently leading, shepherding, and discipling their children & grandchildren
  • Not arrogant or quick tempered
  • Not violent or greedy for gain
  • Not abusing drugs/alcohol
  • Holy & Disciplined
  • Self-controlled & Upright
  • A lover of good & Hospitable
  • Sober-minded & Dignified
  • Sound in faith, love, and steadfastness
  • Holding firm to the Word of God in order to teach & correct others

Women's Ministry

Our Women’s Ministry meets once a month for the purpose of equipping women to grow in four spheres of discipleship (God, family, church, and the world). Women are encouraged to bring their daughters and granddaughters to our meetings.The virtues and character traits from Titus 2:3-6 serve as the core discipleship goals for women at GFC. It is our desire, by the power of the Holy Spirit, that our church be filled with women who are increasingly:

  • Reverent
  • Not Slanderers
  • Able to teach what is good
  • Faithfully loving, respecting, and helping their husbands
  • Faithfully loving and nurturing their children and grandchildren
  • Kind, Self-controlled, and Pure
  • Ministering to their families

Youth & Children's

We are passionate about raising up future generations for the glory of God! Just like the early church, we seek to equip parents and grandparents to be the primary spiritual trainers of their children in the home (Eph. 6:4, Acts 2:39).  This is a multi-generational vision for passing faith to the next generation (Deut 6:4-7; Ps 78:5-8).  We welcome and include children in the corporate worship service and seek to grow in multi-generational fellowship.

Evangelism & Missions

The New Testament church emphasized equipping (Eph. 4:12) and sending believers into the world to make disciples (Matt. 28:18-20). Following this model, we seek to train and equip believers to share the Gospel and the love of Christ through hospitality, in their workplace, and in their community.  We pray God will raise up many missionaries from our church to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth.  Each year we send multiple short term missionaries and are preparing to send long term missionaries as well.

"As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." 

- Jesus   (John 20:21)


"If there be any one point in which the Christian church ought to keep its fervor at a white heat, it is concerning missions.  If there be anything about which we cannot tolerate lukewarmness, it is in the matter of sending the gospel to a dying world." 

- Charles Spurgeon

Care & Counseling

All members of the church will be under the care of one or more pastors. Pastors will call or meet with each member (or head of household) regularly for encouragement and discipleship. In addition, a pastor will seek to visit the home of each member once a year for encouragement and discipleship. Through these personal relationships, the pastors and deacons of the church will respond to situations requiring special support, financial assistance, or counseling.If you are in need of care or support, please contact Pastor Rob, Pastor Michael, or Pastor Mark.
