Who We Are

Our mission in life is to be devout followers of Christ and to live lives fully pleasing to Him. Therefore, since 1979, we have been committed to serving the “least of these” in Asia and Africa, often in places where no one else is serving, so they can experience the love of God for the first time.

What does this mean for us? We have an extraordinary challenge in front of us to collaborate with indigenous missionaries around the world and make an impact now and for generations to come.

Since our worldwide inception in 1979 we’ve been honoured to be able to help so many people and communities! 

YOU could change a life.

We believe in sustainably supporting those in need: by raising up national missionaries through long term missions, creating spaces for people to experience God within their own culture, and to help anyone in need with our education programmes, health initiatives, practical gifts, and through spiritual transformation that brings life-changing peace, restored relationships, and repaired lives.

You could change a life today by gifting something as simple as a bicycle!

Watch how we’re transforming communities around the world

“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed?
And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?
And how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach unless they are sent?

—Romans 10:13-15

Join us on our journey

Wherever you are, no matter how many spare moments you have, we invite you to journey with us

Give

One of the ways you can be a part of this journey is by donating! Your donation could show someone Jesus and have a major impact on their life. Don’t be discouraged if you can give just a small amount! £5 may not change the entire world, but it can completely change one person’s world.

Pray

One of our greatest assets is the transforming power of prayer. We would love for you to join us in praying for our missionaries and the people they serve! We come together every day to pray over the countries, churches, communities and partners that we serve – we'd love for you to join us in prayer (even if you’re not with us in person!)!

Get Involved

You can change lives through fundraising, volunteering, or even joining us on staff. Your time is a gift – if you’d like to fundraise at your church or want us to speak to your community about what we’re doing here at GFA World or you want to volunteer in our office, we would love to chat with you! Sign up to be the first to hear about opportunities!
