"TORCH" GCF Youth

​​
TORCH is the youth ministry we built up at Galway Christian Fellowship.  It is a ministry for students aged 12-18.  The group meets every week, for teaching, prayer, and fellowship. We put together special events and outings for the kids.  Through TORCH ministries, we  developed a discipleship program that we hope will shape the future of this nation.

Discipleship  Small Group

 

Through our small groups and discipling process, we were able to mentor a handful of amazing lads who have the heart, vision and desire to serve Jesus. They specifically feel a call to youth ministry.  Our small groups were held over a weekly basis where we'd meet, connect, share life together over a meal and some fun. These nights were also used to help challenge them to work towards their desire to be used in future ministry.

Community Projects

 

These are photos of past projects that we have had the joy of being a part of. 

We have helped numerous individuals in our church body with projects around their home, served in community functions, luncheons for the eldery, painted and revamped numerous rooms of our church building, and served for years with Shoeboxes which packs and sends shoeboxes full to children who are less fortunate around the world. As you can see, we've had some pretty amazing people help with these endeavours, hence why we have left this category up there.

National Involvement

 

Since 2017, Chris has become very involved on the national level with CCI (Christian Churches Ireland). He was involved in courses to further his education and in 2020 received his ministerial credentials. After graduating, Chris used technology to develop CCI's remote learning hubs, tripling their enrollment! He has served in numerous national conferences which help impact the churches around Ireland and has also become part of the core leadership team for PULSE youth camp, sponsored by CCI.   It's a dynamic thing when we all come together to serve and encourage one another in their walk of faith. What a great honor it has been to be a part of this movement in Ireland.

Teams

 

We've been blessed by teams who have come to serve from our sending church, Living Hope Church in Merrillville Indiana. We could not be here without their constant involvement, passion, prayers and provisions to do this work. It is a wonderful church full of dynamic people in which we have deep relationships that we cherish. They have helped make a deep impact on their visits!

Internships

 

We've been blessed richly by others who have given of their time and efforts to come and serve the people of Galway. It's wonderful to have world's collide! We know this is a team effort, and every single person that God calls to come here, He provides for! From 2014-2016, we were able to have missionary interns. It was truy amazing to see what God has done in and through them! They have impacted lives, and in turn themseves were impacted. They helped with projects and with the youth. We consider this a priceless gift!
