Major Ministries

GFA World ministers among the most needy, sharing the love of Jesus with them. You can help bring hope and lasting change to communities by giving towards resources and programs like these:

Slum Ministry

Tens of millions of people around the world live in the squalor of slums—in one-room shanties, usually without electricity, running water or toilets. But through slum ministry, people in slums have the chance for a better life. GFA missionaries serving in slums teach adult literacy classes and tutor children. They disseminate information about health and hygiene. They distribute income-generating gifts, along with practical gifts, like water filters, toilets and clothing. They also share with slum dwellers about the greatest gift anyone could gain: the love of God.

Medical Ministry


Your gift towards medical ministry can help provide free medical care and health education for people who are suffering and dying from treatable ailments. GFA missionaries host medical camps in impoverished villages and invite teams of nurses, doctors and other health care professionals to provide free medical care. One medical camp may serve 200 to 1,000 people. Helping provide medical care for a family of five costs as little as $5.

Through medical ministry, families that lack access to medication or have never been taught basic hygiene can receive life-saving treatment and health education, all in the name of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

Women's Ministry

The Scriptures show that the Lord has a special role for women to fulfill in His kingdom. The first person to whom God chose to announce His Son's earthly arrival was a woman. Through Jesus' ministry, He demonstrated His value of women in a male-dominated society—teaching them, touching them and healing them. And when He rose from the dead, women were the first to know.

Bible Colleges

Transforming communities through God's love is the vision of GFA World. For this to become a reality, we realized years ago that more national missionaries would be needed who a passion to help the people in their nations understand God’s love.

Your gift towards Bible colleges will help enable committed young men and women to receive on-the-job training through ongoing ministry and quality instruction in the Word of God.

Compassion Services


Compassion Services meets the needs of people in dire situations. During the coronavirus pandemic, for example, GFA missionaries provided face masks, soap, groceries and cooked meals to thousands of people impacted by lockdowns.

When you give to Compassion Services you help enable us to serve people in many needed ways, such as ministering to those in slums and leprosy colonies and even bringing medical care to remote areas. Each area of ministry provides practical, relevant help during times of crisis, such as when poverty becomes life-threatening or after natural disasters. Through these ministries, GFA missionaries are revealing God’s compassion to people in desperate need.

Church Building

$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. Their meetings—and ministries—are also hindered simply because they do not have space to gather as a church family. Your gift helps us to build and repair buildings. 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.
  • Frees believers to worship openly and exuberantly without worrying about disturbing their landlords or neighbours.
  • Shelters believers from heavy rain and intense summer heat.

Jesus Wells


Jesus Wells provide fresh water year-round, protecting communities from waterborne illnesses and sparing women and children from spending hours fetching water. Obtaining clean water is also vital for practicing safe hygiene and for supporting healthy immune systems, both of which prevent the spread of diseases like COVID-19.

Pastors serving near Jesus Wells are able to share about the Living Water mentioned on the well’s plaque. Providing safe water—either by drilling a new well or maintaining existing wells—is a practical way to show communities how much God and His children care for all people!

Film Ministry


Countless people have taken ahold of the hope found in Christ after seeing Man of Mercy, a movie depicting the life of Christ. Teams doing film ministry use an LCD projector kit to show such movies. To offer more people the same opportunity, donate to film ministry to provide items like LCD projector kits.

Broadcasting the Good News

$45 - $180

Broadcasting provides the opportunity for communities to learn about the love of Christ through radio programming, social media platforms and other key internet communication channels. Through these avenues, people across Asia-and even beyond-can discover powerful truths in God's Word. National missionaries write and record messages that are relevant to the cultures and struggles of each audience region, which strengthens people's ability to understand the full meaning of God's mercy. Your gift this year can truly "go tell it on the mountain"!

Holy Scriptures


Many believers in areas we serve are first-generation believers who grew up knowing nothing of God’s ways, and they’re hungry for His Word. Your donation helps give people a copy of God’s Word, enabling them to grow in their knowledge of the Lord and walk more closely with Him.

National Missionaries

$30 monthly / $360 annually

Today, national missionaries like Pastor Marty are bringing words of life and hope to people in places where Christ’s love has never been shared.

National missionaries:

  • Understand the communities they serve and relate with them culturally
  • Live sacrificially so others can find the grace and new life Jesus offers
  • Fill an integral role in distributing Christmas gifts
  • Provide immediate aid to communities experiencing a crisis, such as during the coronavirus pandemic
  • Freely offer prayer and counsel to gift recipients and everyone in their communities
  • By giving toward GFA World’s National Missionary Program, you’ll equip them to serve full time by covering their living and ministry expenses—resulting in lives transformed for eternity.

Unsponsored Children

Many of the children in our Child Sponsorship Program are waiting for permanent sponsors. Your gift towards Unsponsored Children helps us continue providing for them.

Women's Literacy


When women learn to read, they can avoid harmful labour contracts, understand warning labels and avoid being cheated at the marketplace. GFA World supports literacy classes that teach adult women how to read and write. After they graduate from these literacy classes, they’re also able to read God’s Word and can grow in their relationship with Him. Your gift towards things like literacy can help enable women to protect themselves and keep their families healthy while also equipping them to draw closer to God.
