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:  Matt Wireman of Christ the Redeemer, Chris Bates of Family Gate, Erwin Soto of Monaghan en Espanol, Will Broadus of Reconcile Community, and Mitch Williams of The Fold.  We are continually searching for church planters and locations to best provide access to the gospel in Greenville County.  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.




North America

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. The New England area is a spiritually dark portion of the U.S. with a large unreached population.  Currently, we are partnered with two church planters there: one in Charlestown, Massachuesetts, and the second in Olneyville, Rhode Island.  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 2017. 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
