Christmas Eve Missions Offering
This year’s offering will be split between personal gifts to all nine of our regularly-GBC-supported missionaries (see below for descriptions of a few of those missionaries and descriptions of their ministries), and supporting national Turkana, Kenya evangelists, as they strive to reach the remaining unreached villages throughout this vast desert region.
give here

We believe that God calls every Christian to be involved in His great enterprise of bringing the gospel to “the end of the earth” (Matthew 28:19; Acts 1:8). We can pray, give, or go. We believe the most urgent need in missions is to bring the gospel to those who have yet to have the opportunity to hear about Jesus. We also believe that the best way for people in any given place to come to know Christ is through the ministry of local churches, and thus we are committed to church-planting in various “hard” places around the world. Our desire as a church body is to partner in meaningful, encouraging ways with the missionaries we support around the world.

Missionaries we support


Indigenous Turkana, Kenya Missionary-Pastors

Turkana County, NW Kenya

Share International was birthed in 1988 when Sammy Murimi, a Kenyan, felt a distinct call from God to devote his life to bring the gospel to the unreached, semi-nomadic tribe within his home country: the Turkana. After receiving a formal theological education, Share was officially started in 1997, with Sammy's first actual trip to the desert of northwest Kenya. Since then, by God's grace and power, over 500 churches have been planted, and now the pastors of this once unreached tribe of a million people are embarking on bringing the gospel to a neighboring unreached tribe called the Toposa, across the border into South Sudan. Our church has had the privilege of sending many short-term teams to Turkanaland over the years, to work alongside these dear brothers and sisters in their evangelistic and discipleship efforts.
