At GPC we are committed to Jesus Christ’s Great Commission both globally and locally.
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
Pastor John Piper has said that missions exists because worship doesn’t. When we pray in the Lord’s Prayer, “Hallowed be Your Name.” we are praying a mission prayer. It is to be our desire to the Name of Jesus Christ honored and known everywhere. Those waiting to be gathered into worship of God are plenty, we are to ask the Lord for gathers.
We believe that he is sending us – to our families, the marketplace, our communities, and the world. Jesus is himself the reaper who gather in those who are His. We want to be a place that is prepared to receive those whom the Lord is bringing.
