Church planting must be a part of who we are and what we do in Greenville, North America and to the ends of the earth. If you would like to know more about the rationale for church planting in Greenville, contact Joel Thrasher at 864.242.4330 or [email protected].


GBA currently has several church planting partners:  Will Broadus of Reconcile Community, Matt Wireman of Christ the Redeemer, Mitch Williams of The Fold, Alfred Johnson of The Church Without Walls, and Fred Giles of Prevail Church.  Hispanic ministry is a strategic focus for us. We also have numerous other language congregations. To see a complete list of our church plants and partners, click here.

One of our priorities is to take the gospel to places where access is limited or non-existent. GBA launched a partnership with the Baptist Convention of New England in 2015. Several churches are involved in Triads. Our first church planter has begun his work in Charlestown, near Boston. To learn more about our New England Partnership, contact Joel Thrasher at [email protected] or 864.242.4330.





Access to the gospel is of critical concern in many places around the world. Our newest mission partnership is in Southeast Asia. We adopted an Unreached People Group at our Annual Meeting in October of 2018. You will hear, or read, terms such as “10/40 window” or “UPG” or “UUPG”. Unsure of what they mean or want to know more about the partnership, contact Joel Thrasher at [email protected] or 864.242.4330
