International Mission

One of the core principles of GEBC’s Vision Statement, is to Love God; Love Others; and Serve the World.“ One of the ways we express this is through sending and supporting members of our congregation on cross cultural mission overseas.

At GEBC the ‘Goers and Senders’ group meets monthly to hear from missionaries and to pray for them. The group meets for lunch on the 3rd Sunday of the month in ‘The Zone.’

GEBC currently supports the following overseas missions:

Peter and Leonora

For many years, Peter and Leonora have lived and worked in one of South Asia’s largest red-light districts, serving with Tranzsend, where they have helped establish a freedom business which offers employment to vulnerable people. The electronics and stationery business they set up has continued to grow, and now employs many women out of the sex trade. After a year’s leave of absence in New Zealand, Peter and Leonora returned to South Asia in 2014, refreshed and eager to explore new avenues through which to serve. Currently they are offering heritage tours for individuals and groups, which gives participants the opportunity to explore, understand and pray for the people of South Asia. They have established a network of relationships with local groups, providing hospitality, education and support. They are also heavily involved with a theological college in the area, where they support both the faculty and students.

Short Term Teams

Every other year individuals and teams are sent out from GEBC on short term mission. In July 2017 we have sent a team of 14 to Fiji for 2 weeks as part of the BYM ‘Do Teams.’
