Fulfilling the Great Commission through collaboration.

The Great Commission Foundation is a team of skilled administrative and accounting personnel dedicated to using their talents and expertise to enable people to follow God’s calling to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. GCF is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency to do charitable work.

How do we help with ministry?

The Great Commission Foundation (GCF) works with ministries of many types and sizes. We want to see people working in ministry thrive, and we believe that by providing charity administration expertise and guidance, we can free people to focus on the mission work God has called them to.

Professional Services In addition to our office staff and the expertise they provide, the Great Commission Foundation engages charity specialists, including a Charity Specialist Lawyer, to assist with understanding CRA requirements and changes, as well as a professional Charity Specialist Auditor (MNP) to conduct an annual audit of the Foundation.

We enable our ministry projects (Agents) to benefit from these crucial services without having to bear the burden of the high financial or time investment costs associated with these services.
U.S. Services Friends of the Great Commission is our USA-based 501c3 charity, registered with the IRS. It has the same mandate to join people, ministries, and projects to help fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

As a registered charity in the U.S., and an affiliate of The Great Commission Foundation, we are able to serve donors and charities in both Canada and the U.S.


I have worked as an agent with GCF for almost 10 years and found them to be invaluable. They provide integrity and accountability for ministry and also have opened up resources which give more visibility. I have ministered the gospel in several countries and watched hundreds of people become Christians. Without GCF that could not have happened.

I see and have experienced the value of having a foundation like this, that uplifts and comes alongside missionaries.GCF is like a launching pad for missionaries to be sent out across the earth and I think they do a great job of stewarding and cultivating a foundation that supports that.
