Vocational Training

Vocational Training

Suggested donation: $75

In places like Sri Lanka and South India, where the 2004 tsunami displaced so many lives, and in teeming cities like Delhi and Mumbai, the ability to make a decent living often involves vocational training that is beyond the reach of the poor. As a further witness to the Gospel, GFA is teaming up with local churches to offer training in such practical fields as welding, sewing or other basic trades.

"Sewing" Seeds for Eternity with the Gift of a Sewing Machine

Behind-the-Scenes Missionary Sponsorship

Behind-the-Scenes Missionary Sponsorship

The Mission Support Team is comprised of behind-the-scenes missionaries who serve in GFA World’s administrative offices. Although they serve in offices far from the physical mission field, their role is vital to the ministry.

For nearly 40 years, behind-the-scenes missionaries have functioned as a crucial link between the mission field and the Western Church. By communicating with GFA supporters in their country and raising resources for the field, the Mission Support Team has provided the field with the critical prayer and financial support needed for ministry.

In much the same way that the Mission Support Team stands behind frontline missionaries on the field, you can stand with behind-the-scenes missionaries and enable them to continue in their role.

They disseminate information about health and hygiene. They distribute income-generating gifts, along with practical gifts, like water filters, toilets and clothing.

Women's Ministry

Church Building

Church Building

Suggested donation: $10,000 to $40,000

Fledgling congregations often lack a permanent structure to use for worship services, which exposes them to a host of problems.

Even a gift of $80 can help provide decades of safer worship; with others sharing the cost, a church can be built!

A place of worship:

  • Testifies to the local community of the Lord’s presence and the credibility and stability of the local congregation.
  • Protects believers from outside dangers during worship services.
  • Offers a safe, welcoming location for visitors from any background who want to learn about Jesus.
  • Serves as a center for relief distributions during times of crisis.

  • Shelters believers from heavy rain and intense summer heat.
