Missions

"...and as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Rom. 10:15


What would it look like if each person at GT decided to live a fully missional life? Would every person in Reading be fed and clothed? Would the sick be cared for? Would the lonely have a friend? Would our complaints be quieted and our complacent living banished? Jesus met people where they were at. We want to do the same, starting in Berks County. Our mission is to serve in our community. We love to partner with others and allow God to use us as a world-wide team of Christ-followers. GT Missions supports 70 missionaries all over the world. We are blessed in America and we can celebrate our blessedness by sharing it with others who are less fortunate and impoverished.

AT GT, WE STRIVE TO BE A CHURCH COMMUNITY THAT REACHES OUT TO THOSE IN NEED BY LIVING BEYOND OURSELVES.

If we would give of our love, time and resources…
If we would enter into community with others, pointing towards hope…
If we would pray for the continuation of following in God’s wake…
Then we would fulfill Jesus’ mission.
That’s our heart.

What is Project Impact?

Project Impact is our fund for giving above and beyond the tithe and is used to provide resources that help us excel-erate the gospel further and faster. This fund will be used to support global projects, church expansion, and local outreach. Each year, we prayerfully seek God's direction for how He wants GT Church to make an impact in His Kingdom and invest our financial efforts accordingly. Giving to Project Impact is one way that you can help GT Church share the love of Jesus across the street and around the world!

To join a prayer band, stop by the Missions HUB or email GO@gtaog.org.
