Gospel for Asia (GFA) moved its offices from Carrollton, Texas to Wills Point, Texas in Kaufman a few years ago. This moved placed the nonprofit ministry on a campus where staff and people helping to fulfill the mission of Gospel for Asia can be housed.
The mission of Gospel for Asia (GFA) as stated on gfa.org:
Our mission in life is to be devout followers of Christ and to live lives fully pleasing to Him. God has given us a special love for the people of Asia, and it is our desire to minister to them and help them through ministries like education, health and practical gifts, or through the spiritual transformation of peaceful hearts, restored relationships and mended lives. We do this all in community and in partnership with the global Body of Christ.
Interestingly, Gospel for Asia uses its campus and property to give back to the community:
- Various people from the community have found new employment with Gospel for Asia (GFA) and Gospel for Asia (GFA) hosts or supports other local activities that are part of the community.
- Gospel for Asia’s campus hosted a supply run for the local community where the funds would benefit children going back to school.
