International Volunteer Opportunities

Operation Christmas Child The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with local churches worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. GBPC has been hosting this project each October – November and asking our church body to take home one of the wrapped shoe boxes provided, fill it up with special gifts, and return to the church with the $7.50 donation to help with shipping costs. Each year, GPBC collects approximately 350 boxes to send off to children around the world in need of Christmas cheer!

Rise Against Hunger Volunteers needed to help with packaging dried food meals to be shipped overseas to countries experiencing famine. This is a great family event or small group event, as any age is able to participate. We host packing events in the Spring and Summer.
