Is It Worth It?

Jesus says it is in Mark 8:35!

GFA staff serve as the link between the work of national missionaries and the people who support them. Using administrative, financial, technical and communications skills, we enable national missionaries to impact millions with the love of Christ.

K.P. Yohannan

"It is a great privilege in life to give our time and our talents to see millions, who never heard Christ’s name before, have the chance to experience His love. Either we go or we send others to share His love. Either way, we are doing the same thing: sharing the love of Christ with this world that is waiting to hear."

K.P. Yohannan (Metropolitan Yohan)
Founder and Director

Using Your Skills

GFA World is a place where the skills and experience you may have never thought valuable for ministry work are invaluable in the growth of God’s kingdom.

Working at GFA means you serve in an office to change lives for eternity, using the skills God has given you.

Missions is not just for those who take cross-cultural training. It’s for everyone.

For example, writers use their skills to communicate the ministry and the programs of GFA to partners and potential partners through stories from the field, advertising pieces, brochures and other publications. Through their efforts, many learn about GFA for the first time and become partners, while current partners of the ministry are informed and encouraged.

Graphic designers use their skills to bring visual excitement to what has been written, adding color and freshness to brochures, letters, and other publications. Together, they help illustrate what God is doing on the mission field.

Sacrifice and Perseverance

Serving in full-time ministry does come with challenges. It requires sacrifice, perseverance and the daily picking up of our cross. Society may say it's throwing your career or future away, but we believe it's all worth it. Not only do we get to follow Jesus alongside other like-minded believers, but we also have the joy of knowing our daily labors are resulting in communities being transformed through the love of Christ. And the dream of meeting those people in heaven is a future worth living for. There's no ladder to climb, just a call to lay down your life to make a significant difference in the world.

Apply Now

“Not only did training and supporting national missionaries through GFA seem to be one of the best ways to tell this generation about Jesus and His love for them, but in my heart, I realized and knew that there are people—not just statistics, but real people—dying every day and going to hell without ever hearing the name of Jesus. I just couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life than serving with GFA World."
