About This Organization

Friends of the Great Commission (FGC) is a registered charity with a team of skilled administrative and accounting personnel dedicated to using their talents and expertise to enable people to follow God’s calling to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.

FGC works exclusively with Christian ministries and ministry projects in a dynamic cooperative relationship.

FGC relieves much of the administrative burden all charities must manage, enabling our partners to focus on the ministry work to which God has called them. It is a team effort working towards common charitable goals: the advancement of the Christian faith, the furtherance of education, and the relief of poverty.
