One Year Discipleship Program.

Life-transforming community.

The Founder of GFA World (Formerly: Gospel for Asia) and Metropolitan of Believers Eastern Church invites young Christians aged 18-27 to spend a year of monastic-inspired life marked by rhythms of prayer, sacrifice and service, within a community devoted to “Serving God & Humanity.”

A year in our Discipleship Program will teach you to live an ordered, Christ-centred life through spiritually formational practices giving you a firm foundation in your faith to live your life purposefully for the glory of God.

What will my year be like?

Tough and Transforming! Two words that describe what you can expect from this experience.

This is an opportunity to come away for a time and learn what it means to take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. A great saint once said that to follow Jesus means “to imitate the pattern of His life”.

You can expect your year to be tough, because dying to self and carrying crosses are always difficult. But you can also expect it to be life transforming as you learn to imitate the pattern of Jesus’ life, little by little, step by step, walking with others who have the same goal.

There's no going back after this radical transformation in your life through this intense year of discipleship.

The Meeting Place

June 27, 2018

In a recent message given during our Tuesday night prayer meeting, we heard about the subject of holy ground. This is mentioned a few times in the Bible. The one we are most familiar with is the story of Moses and the burning bush.

Biking for Aids

June 5, 2018

On Saturday, May 26, 2018, a group of GFA World Staff headed to Queenston, ON to participate in the 12th Annual Scenic Niagara Bike-a-thon hosted by Word & Deed Ministries.

Since 2007, this Bike-a-thon has been a crucial fundraiser for the Nakekela HIV/AIDS Clinic in South Africa. In that time, it has raised close to $700,000 (net)!

Bike-a-thon

This year, over 250 participants completed the bike-a-thon, raising around $40,000 for the Nakekela HIV/AIDS Clinic in South Africa. At 10 A.M. bikers began the route from Mather Arch in Fort Erie travelling for 40.5 km to the Queenston Heights Park in Queenston. Along the way were pit stops with water, snacks and repairs for any bikes that broke down.

The event wrapped up with a delicious free barbecue at 12 P.M. and prizes were awarded to the top ten fundraisers.

Hamilton Beach Clean Up

May 10, 2018

GFA World staff and students headed out early on Saturday morning, April 28th, 2018 to the Hamilton Beach Rescue Unit, for their 11th Annual Team up to Clean Up event. Team Up to Clean Up is a city-wide community cleanup program that attracts more than 20,000 enthusiastic volunteers across the city, each year. The City of Hamilton's Keep Hamilton Clean and Green Committee supports residents and community groups to help keep their neighbourhood, park, trail or alleyway clean by providing gloves, specially marked garbage or recycling bags and graffiti wipes.

Beach Cleanup

A group of local volunteers assembled at the Hamilton Beach Rescue Unit at their headquarters on Beach Boulevard to collect their garbage pickup supplies: free gloves and orange garbage bags.  From there they spread out along the Lake Ontario beach and spent the morning cleaning up the shoreline.  After a morning of hard work volunteers returned to the Rescue Unit for free hot-dogs and coffee from the event’s sponsor Tim Hortons.  Councillor Chad Collins who was there as the City of Hamilton's representative, was grateful for everyone who came out to help clean up their community.
