Access Your Giving

For those of you who have financially supported us for many years, you've given each month towards Great Commission Ministries (GCM) who partners with our local church. GCM is the critical piece that helps make our local ministry possible: providing the strong financial accountability and missionary care so you can give with confidence. 

As I write this, GCM headquarters is busy sending announcements that they are changing their name! In 2015, GCM will be known as Reliant. 

We're excited about the new name: it reflects how we are all dependant (Reliant!) on God as we take risks to give our money and lives for the gospel. Nothing happens unless God shows up! 

Some could wonder if Reliant will still be committed to the Great Commission. We want to assure you that they are more committed than ever, and have seen growth over the last several years that has really expanded their impact for the gospel.

Important Note: if you give automatically via LifeLink (credit card or bank direct debit), you don't need to make any changes to your giving. The ministry account and fund number remain secure and exactly the same. Eventually you will see "Reliant" appear on giving statements. If you give via check, we ask that you start making your gift out to Reliant starting in May. The address remains the same. Checks gifts need to be switched over to Reliant by July 31, 2015. 

Nothing else is changing: Our church remains Illini Life Christian Fellowship, and Collegiate Church Network is the same. Ashley and I are 100% committed to our mission of reaching students with the Gospel at the University of Illinois. We're excited to now be "Reliant missionaries." And we couldn't be more thankful to have you as continued partners in prayer and support. 

For more information on the change to Reliant, you can visit the microsite, Reliant.gcmweb.org. As always, feel free to contact us as well if you have questions. We love catching up!

If we've never met, hi! We work with Great Commission Ministries (GCM is becoming Reliant), a missions organization that helps missionaries raise support and go to the mission field. Our current calling and placement is at the University of Illinois, where we work with a local church called Illini Life Christian Fellowship, a member church in Collegiate Church Network. You can support our work by giving directly to GCM. If you want to share our stories, click the share buttons below.
