Missions at Gloria Dei

As disciples of Christ with a mission of helping more people live life with Jesus every day, we are compelled to love and serve others both locally and globally. From multiple international trips each year to partnerships with local ministries, we are always striving to fulfill the Great Commission. Check out all of our mission opportunities and see where the Holy Spirit guides you. Contact Stephanie Knea to get involved or if you have any questions.

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

Kids Hope

Become a mentor in one of our local elementary schools. Kids Hope USA helps churches develop one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk children in supportive mentoring relationships. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour a week— reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed. For more information, email Jean Peltier.

Disaster Relief

Do you enjoy working with a team to complete a project? Would you rather provide a meal for volunteers? All of these roles could be potential volunteer needs the next time a disaster strikes. If you would like to be added to this team, please send your contact information, and area of interest for serving, to Stephanie Knea.

FiveTwo

God calls many Christians to be sacred starters. But many of them feel stuck and unsure of how to move forward. FiveTwo has created a proven approach that clarifies, equips, and activates their unique calling called StartNew Training. And, FiveTwo provides a network that supports them throughout their journey. When more Christians activate their entrepreneurial skills, they will help more people know Jesus and make an eternal difference in their local communities.
