Seen by some as a luxurious tropical getaway spot, the small country of Belize is much more than beaches, resorts and blue lagoons. If you travel outside of the hopping vacation centers, you won't have to go far before you encounter the less popular, poor, weathered and neglected side of Belize. As with many other Central-American countries, the tourism sector of Belize is not sufficient to power a thriving economy for the entire country. The vast majority of Belizians make a living through traditional farming or the selling of goods and services. But with an unemployment of over 60%, there are many who are left to fend for themselves to make ends meet. 

As a church, we believe God has called us to reach the people of Belize. Over the last few years we've seen the Lord place strategic partners in our path that will provide the connection we need to spread the Gospel there. The GBC Advancing Committee, as well as Pastor Charles and our pastoral staff, have embraced this poor country as a target for Gospel ministry that we feel our church is equipped to carry out.

Take a look at our latest project!

In October of 2018 we began construction on a clothing store at The Crossing in Hope Creek, right outside of Dangriga. This store will be an outlet to sell new or gently-used items that are donated by our church and other partners. It will provide jobs and give continual opportunities to build relationships and share the Gospel.

How can you get involved?

Pray:

Commit yourself to interceding on behalf of the people and workers in Belize. Ask the Lord to make clear the path before us and begin softening hearts to receive the good news of the Gospel.

We will be planning multiple trips in the 2018-19 year and are looking for those gifted in not only evangelism and discipleship, but people with construction skills, medical skills and sports/entertainment ideas will be needed for our upcoming trips.
