Gospel Village Family,

big thank you goes out to those of you that filled out the surveys. They will help us know how to better serve you and make our ministry efforts more effective.

I also want to thank those of you that sent in your Auto Insurance cards. We will need a few more from some of you. If that is you, we still need them and would appreicate it if you could send those to us by September 15th. You can send those to Bailey at bcrawford@thementoringalliance.com

For those of you that have students that went to camp and want to grow in their faith, we will host a Next Steps class. This class will help students develop a basic understanding of salvation, the Christian life, and baptism. The classes will be held on September 17th and September 24th at The Boys & Girls Club from 6-8 p.m. We welcome your student to join us. Students that complete this class are eligible for baptism at Grace (Old Jacksonville Campus) on October 21st. If they are interested, please reserve a spot by emailing Bailey at bcrawford@thementoringalliance.com

The Gospel Village team will be coming to various churches this fall to share what God is doing and invite others to join in. If we come to your church, we ask that you consider doing the following: 

  • Pray that God will send potential mentors by the booth
  • Wearing your Gospel Village shirt on that Sunday
  • Come by the booth and say hello
  • Bring someone by the booth that might be a good mentor
  • Sign-up to help us at the booth. You can do so by emailing Bailey at bcrawford@thementoringalliance.com

Here are the following churches/dates:

  • September 30th - Green Acres
  • October 7th - Marvin & Living Acts
  • October 14th - Bethel Bible (Downtown & South)
  • October 21st - South Spring & Baptisms at Grace (Old Jacksonville)

Lastly, let's all join the apostle Paul in praying this for our students:

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God." Colossians 1:9-10

In Christ, 


Carlton Oby
Sr. Director of Ministries

GV to Pine Cove Outback

Gospel Village took 93 mentees to Pine Cove Outback down in Columbus, TX earlier this month. We saw spiritual growth in SO many of our mentees.

17 realized their need of Jesus and were saved, and 2 were baptized while we were there! AMEN! Below are some photos of this fun and spiritually refreshing time we had.
