What is GBA?

Our Vision: Access to the gospel for all – starting here!

Our Mission: We create access to the gospel by:

  • REACHING the unreached – As followers of Jesus, we want to share his Good News with others.  We create access to the gospel through a variety of ministries.
  • REVITALING existing churches – We are committed to strengthening our existing churches to better create access to the gospel in their communities.
  • REPRODUCING new churches – We strategically work to create access to the gospel in places where it is limited or non-existent.

GBA Informational Brochure and Prayer Guide

The Greenville Baptist Association is made up of 100+ churches who voluntarily partner together to do more than any one church can do alone. Together, we are the Greenville Baptist Association!

 

Partnering With GBA
Your church can partner with the GBA by participating in the training, events, and meetings of the association.  There are quarterly Executive Committee meetings where we celebrate what God is doing here and take care of important business.  We have an Annual Meeting each October where we worship and share what God has done in us and through us that year.  There are a wide variety of training and outreach events throughout the year.

You can partner by praying faithfully for the other churches and work of our association and our leaders on the staff.  You can keep up with what God is doing here and pray for the many projects designed to REACH the unreached, REVITALIZE existing churches, and REPRODUCE new churches.

You can partner by giving to both our annual operating budget and to our GLOCAL Missions Fund.  The budget supports the operating expenses of the GBA and the staff.  Churches typically give up to 3% of their income to the local association.

GLOCAL = GLObal Missions + LoCAL Missions

The GLOCAL Missions Fund is designed to raise money for our missions efforts such as supporting new church plants and revitalization projects.  Churches give to this by designating money from their budgets or by taking up special offerings.  Some take up offerings each year during Association Emphasis Week while other take up offerings quarterly for this special fund.  Every penny of money raised goes directly to our church plants and revitalization projects and missions work in Southeast Asia.

You can partner with GBA by joining the association.  If your church is not a part of a local association, there is a simple process to follow to join with us.  If you share our vision and want to be part of something bigger to build the kingdom of God, why not consider joining with us.  Contact us today to find out how you can start the process by calling (864)242-4330.
