A honest letter to you
God has grown Global Challenge Expeditions from a couple of friends embarking on the first pioneer expedition in 2006 to a fully registered South African Non-Profit Organization with full many full time staff.
With this growth in capacity, God is also challenging of us to walk in a manner worthy of this calling.
As leadership we set apart time, to pray, to fast and seek God for a renewed vision and aligned direction.
We believe God has unmistakably called us to STEP UP!!
These are the areas where we, as a n organization, can no longer compromise:
- Leadership and a commitment to raw-obedience to God
- Our relationship with God
- Discipline in seeking God and sitting with Him
- To keep pioneering and faith core to all expeditions
- Unity and community to be central
- Focus on equipping and mobilizing leaders
- Evangelism, sharing the Good News and building relationships.
- Ensuring our expeditions stretch participants to fully depend and rely on God and not their own insight or resources.
- We are called to disciple leaders, evangelists and missionaries of the future
"Bringing in a harvest of souls, serving communities in need and upliftment of poverty stricken people groups will be the lasting fruits of successful implementation of the above."
We are also at a place where we have to acknowledge God’s provision and favour over us up to now! The way He has provided is truly remarkable and we are grateful. We know we signed up for this faith journey, whether back in the office, or out in the field!
As a GCEX family we continue to trust God for His provision.
Currently our main source of income is from our particapants, as we keep back a percentage for our administration and setup costs and includes the support for our teams in the field. With the growth of our expeditions and projects it is becoming difficult to sustain this support and are we at a place where we desperately need an additional source of income.
Our Strategy is to raise individuals who will be willing to commit to the above calling and invest in Global Challenge Expeditions as an organization. Through your monthly contribution you will help us to carry the day to day running costs as well as enable us to effectively support the teams! Currently our staff is responsible to raise some monthly income through individual donations and raise all travel expenses when visiting teams in the field.
We have dedicated a bank account for the purpose of fundraising and you can either set up your own debit orders manually through personal internet banking or make use of our secure online donations page.
Dunette van Aswegen is our in house accountant and any queries will be passed on to her.
As a registered Non-Profit Organisation we are able to issue an "Article 18 Tax receipts" to South African individuals or businesses who donate to us! We are more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure all the paperwork gets done.
We invite you to make an investment that will surely pay out over the course of eternity!
