Araminta’s mission is: to awaken, equip and mobilize the Church and our community to end Human Trafficking in the Baltimore area. As we ourselves cease all active and passive participation in the many forms of the exploitive sex industry, we will engage in the:

  • Prevention of the sexual exploitation of minors

HopeSprings‘ vision is: By the power of the Triune God, HopeSprings will restore hope and healing through the eradication of HIV and AIDS and its stigma.

HopeSprings has been equipping and engaging volunteers with our partners since November 2006. Our efforts began slowly with just a few volunteers and two churches, but have steadily grown over time. Today we have hundreds of volunteers from a multitude of churches who have been equipped through our training course.

PRAYER MINISTRY IN BALTIMORE CITY SCHOOLS

The Lord has opened up wonderful doors of opportunity for prayer within Baltimore City and one of the things you see in dramatic fashion is that prayer changes things! Contact babell@gfc.org for more information as to how to be involved in these initiatives.

LOCAL CROSS-CULTURAL OUTREACH

Within a five minute drive of our church there is a wonderfully diverse community, many of whom were born outside of the US. We desire to be a blessing to this community in different ways.

Refugee ministry

We are in the beginning stages of getting involved in serving these new arrivals to the US. You quickly realize that, for most people, integrating into American culture is extremely difficult and there are many roadblocks. Sometimes Americans are not as welcoming as they could be. The church can plan a significant role in welcoming. Please contact jsteinitz@gfc.org for more information and ways to be involved.

Disaster response ministry

The question isn’t if a disaster is going to hit our area, but when. The church is in a unique position to respond to disasters in meaningful and helpful ways. A network of churches are forming in the north Baltimore area to discover the best way the church can come alongside those whose responsibility it is to help in times of crisis.
