GC3 is our brand name which represents the diverse ministries and services our three trusts provide our network of churches and mission partners. As a brand, it is used extensively in our promotional material and publications. But sitting within that brand is the strength of our history, the passion for our current activities, the dedication of our people and the vision of our Board.
Our purpose is for "Effective Mission – Every Church". We exist for that purpose and under God work proactively to that end. Underpinning everything we do is the mandate of Jesus to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you". Matt 28:20 (NIV)
You will note the use of the word "Connect" in our publication names. It is our strong desire to connect with people and churches to achieve our purpose. We exist to connect and serve.
GCiM serves 150 people engaged in strategic cross-cultural mission activity in 36 countries around the world.
GC Aid was established in 2008 to focus our attention on humanitarian needs to provide for the relief of suffering.
Many of our Mission Partners and affiliated organisations are involved with these adversities as part of their daily ministries. The goal for GC Aid is to assist in the transformation of communities both within and outside New Zealand with the use of resources that we may be able to provide. Our focus has primarily been given to disaster relief. Considerable funds have come through GC Aid for disasters in Australia, the Philippines, Samoa, Japan, the Horn of Africa, Christchurch and Haiti. GC Aid sincerely thanks those who have supported projects in these times of extreme need.
GC Assist provides the physical and human resources for GC3's operations.
