Great Commission Fund

The Great Commission Fund (GCF) was established in order to give one time and multiphase grants which further the Good News of the Gospel in Jesus Christ, locally and globally.  With God’s grace and an initial gift of $500,000 the GCF has given out over $1,000,000 while preserving the balance fund at $500,000.

  • Examples of funded projects include:
  • Building schools in D. R. Congo
  • Job training for the ex-offenders in Chicago
  • Creation of Bible commentaries in Arabic, Hindi and Tamil languages
  • Establishment of Tumekutana, Presbyterian and reformed women’s leadership network, active in 23 African countries
  • Launch of university student ministry in the Middle East and North Africa

 The Fund exists through donations of individuals and careful stewardship of funds.  If you would like to donate towards this, all gifts are given through First Presbyterian Church, Evanston.
