Restoration Gateway

MAKING CLEAR GOD'S SACRIFICIAL GRACE This week the GCF team was able to spend time with Dave and Janna McPhee of Restoration Gateway, a disciple-making ministry in Uganda. Among the many things Dave and Janna do, ministering to the local churches in Uganda plays a significant role. Dave shared of a recent time when God’s provision over their ministry was very evident. Sometimes they will travel with a large group to different villages and meet and worship with other churches. On one such occasion, they met with a church of 400 people and what they experienced was a blending [...]

El Camino

BURN CAMPS INTRODUCE EVERLASTING HEALING IN MEXICO We were inspired today during our meeting with Great Commission Foundation partners at El Camino in Guaymas, Mexico. El Camino’s presence in the state of Sonoma has been an important one for many years. Through the Saturday morning children’s ministry, El Camino has seen the Lord’s healing hand both physically and socially. Through the teaching of the Gospel, they have inspired children to believe in what God has planned for their lives, inspiring mothers and fathers to reject lives that can be filled with hurt and violence and embrace Christ’s desire for [...]

Camps

IT'S JUST that SIMPLE I have another situation where I have three camps that we actually serve and none of them has a CRA registration. Two of those camps have applied repeatedly for registration and there’s always some delay. They can never get it. It’s been years and years but there are three children’s camps that are excellent ministries—one in Saskatchewan, two in Alberta—and they wouldn’t be able to receipt donors if it wasn’t for us. It’s just that simple.

Project Jesus for Children

NO WORRIES I have a fellow from Alberta that sold his business and took his family to Costa Rica. While he was in business one of his favorite projects to support was the Jesus Film project. He was going to take a year’s sabbatical with his family and after a short while he got restless with nothing to do, so he rounded up the Jesus film and started showing it there. Well last year, (by the way, it’s mom and dad and two girls), they had 180,000 kids in Sunday School every week. They got a program going throughout [...]

Great Commission Media Ministries

FREED UP for MINISTRY The Great Commission Media Ministries (GCM ministries) came to us when they were being challenged by CRA. GCM has always been a friend of mine going back to before I even started the foundation. One day, they were sharing the struggle they were going through and how they might lose their CRA registration. I listened further. “There’s nothing wrong with what you’re doing,” I said, “May I bring my lawyer into the room?” They agreed and we survived the CRA audit. GCM realized right then that they didn’t have the expertise or experience we did. [...]
