Since GBC first started in 1996, we have always committed to be involve in support of global mission as well as local mission (evangelism). We have over the years sent or been involved with various missionaries and agencies.
We base our approach upon the 5 Global Giants that come from a fallen sinful world - Spiritual Emptiness, Self-Serving Leadership, Poverty, Disease, and Illiteracy.So PEACE stands forPlanting or Partner with churches to combat Spiritual Emptiness. So Preaching, Teaching and making disciples.Equip servant leaders to combat Self-Serving Leadership. Good theological teaching / training so pastors etc are teaching people correctly.Assist the poor to combat Poverty by providing for the peoples needs (not wants)Care for the sick to combat Disease by providing health care where needed.Educate the next generation to combat Illiteracy so they have the ability to read Gods word and to understand it as well as improving their lives generally.We seek to see if our missionaries / partners fit into one or more of these areas.
Over the years we have sent a number of our members out on mission. Our first was Suzanne Spence who went to Zambia. Then we had Stuart Winter who went to HCJB in Spain working in radio and Clive and Kathryn Gray heading to Papua to be involve in flying. Des and Lyn Harper sent time with OM Ships and also in various other roles. Mark and Hannah Beattie were our latest members out in the global mission field but had to return due to children's health issues.
