At Global Catalytic Ministries we seek to value what God values and live counter culturally, pursuing Kingdom culture above all. One of these Kingdom cultures is generosity. While the world prioritizes building personal wealth, valuing self, and prioritizing the individual, we look to Biblical truth and choose to value relationships, treating others as more important than ourselves.
Jesus Gave It All
Jesus modeled it for us, leaving the comforts and glory of Heaven to humbly take the form of a human infant; totally dependent and without even the dignity of wealth or power all for our sake. He gave it all for us, and it’s our joy to give it all for others.
We Will Go First
When we call people into the kingdom we are asking them to lay down their lives completely: for Jesus first and above all else but also living out the natural extension of that by giving unto others as well. We won’t invite people into something we don’t live out ourselves. That means at GCM we are committed to profound generosity, leading the way in love and family. We leave what is comfortable for those we love. We give of our time, our resources, our energy, and our finances for those around us in need, both physically and spiritually.
Generosity as Love
We do it all because He first did it all for us, modeling the kind of generosity that gives itself away in selfless love. We also remember that everything we have has been given to us for the very sake of giving it away. Kingdom culture moves through generosity. When every individual seeks to serve others, everyone has what they need, physically, spiritually, and relationally.
A Biblical Example
The book of Acts provides a beautiful representation of what this can look like in human relationships: “Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common.
And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need” (Acts 4:32-35 ESV).
Our Mission Statement
Here at GCM, whether we have your boots on the ground in a foreign missions field, are serving those in our cities and neighborhoods, or are investing financially in the great commission, we are all fulfilling the same call. Together, we live out the GCM mission statement: We will lead the way with profound generosity, unconditional love and family are our heartbeat. Generosity is the blood flow.
