Missions

"...and as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Rom. 10:15


What would it look like if each person at GT decided to live a fully missional life? Would every person in Reading be fed and clothed? Would the sick be cared for? Would the lonely have a friend? Would our complaints be quieted and our complacent living banished? Jesus met people where they were at. We want to do the same, starting in Berks County. Our mission is to serve in our community and around the world. "And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

We love to partner with others and allow God to use us as a world-wide team of Christ-followers. GT Missions supports over 130 missionaries all over the world. We want every tribe, tongue, and nation to know that Jesus is the hope of the world!

AT GT, WE STRIVE TO BE A CHURCH COMMUNITY THAT REACHES OUT TO THOSE IN NEED BY LIVING BEYOND OURSELVES.

Giving back to the community is an important value here at GT Church. If you are looking for a way to give back and have a desire to help people who are in need, we encourage you to check out the current schedule of local outreach opportunities:

What is Project Impact?

Project Impact is our fund for giving above and beyond the tithe and is used to provide resources that help us accelerate the gospel further and faster. This fund will be used to support global projects, church expansion, and local outreach. Each year, we prayerfully seek God's direction for how He wants GT Church to make an impact in His Kingdom and invest our financial efforts accordingly. Giving to Project Impact is one way that you can help GT Church share the love of Jesus across the street and around the world!
