That’s what GFA’s staff is doing, both in America and many nations. So, may I urge you to consider giving your life as a missionary behind the scenes along with GFA’s staff? You have an incredible opportunity waiting for you to invest your life for eternity.”

"Many of our friends and family members have expressed to us that they do not understand how we could give up the American Dream and life of ease we had achieved. But we know we have not given up anything, as 100 years from now, we will experience heaven with millions who have experienced the love of Jesus through GFA. We are truly humbled that the Lord has given us the privilege to serve Him with GFA."
—Chris and Cindy, GFA World staff for 20+ years

“By serving on staff, we feel this is where we are the most effective in being part of what God is doing around the world. It is such a privilege to be called, to be led by God to assist those on the front lines!”
—Tony and Kelly, GFA World staff for 10+ years

“I am honored and blessed that God would hand-pick me and entrust me with a calling to serve at GFA World. There are millions needing to know of Christ, and each day is another day that the Lord allows me to represent His love among those in Africa and Asia!”
