Future Generations

Investing in the Lives of Future Christian Leaders

Chi Alpha

Glad Tidings has the call to reach future generations. With that in mind, Texas has many university campuses where students need to encounter the love and truth of Jesus. We currently support 15 full-time campus missionaries to college campuses across Texas. Young adults are encountering Jesus through the pointed initiative of Chi Alpha to bring the gospel to the university.

One of our campus ministries that we support is Longhorn Chi Alpha. The University of Texas at Austin is aneducational hub for the world. The nations are sending their students to the university in our back yard. Through the dedication of Chi Alpha leaders, small group leaders, and host homes through "Discover America," many international students have made the decision to follow Jesus and have brought transformation to their families abroad.

In addition, Chi Alpha students are encouraged to give at least a year of their life to serve in missions. Many missionaries have received their life-long calling through their time in Chi Alpha. The return on investment for this initiative couldn't be greater.

Church Planting

Church planting is in the DNA of our church. One of our core values is spreading the Gospel through the strategic planting of new churches. In addition to the campuses that we have planted, we have also been able to support the launch of various other campuses around the nation.

We are a part of the Church Planting Multiplication Network (CMN) of the Assemblies of God which helps church planters gain the training and resources needed to successfully launch a healthy church in the community in which God calls them. In 2021, Glad Tidings Church will host a national training
program for the Assemblies of God in which close to 20 new churches will be planted.

Last year, we helped plant three new churches - one in Berkeley, California (one of the most unchurched areas in the nation), another in Columbia, South Carolina alongside a Chi Alpha ministry to college students and a third just down the road in Kyle, Texas. Each of these new churches are thriving and are reaching individuals who would have never had the opportunity to hear the good news otherwise.
We are committed to the spread of the gospel through church planting in 2021. We will take on 2 new church plant partners that will continue to reach new people with the Gospel.

Royal Family Kids

Royal Family Kids is a Christian-led organization that exists to transform communities by interrupting the cycles of neglect, abuse, and abandonment of children in the foster care system.

For many years, Glad Tidings Church has partnered with Royal Family Kids to host an annual summer camp where children have a whole week to be cared for, encouraged, and celebrated. It takes a great deal of organization, volunteers, and funds to orchestrate this event.

Many of our own people willingly sacrifice a week of their vacation time and spend it loving on local foster children. Children have collided with the love of Jesus and many have been completely transformed and have even broken cycles of poverty in their own lives through their connection to Royal Family Kids.
One of the most rewarding portions of the annual camp is the time when abused and neglected children hear about the unconditional love of their good heavenly Father and get to receive Jesus as their savior.

Kingdom Builders will assist in the funding and resourcing of this wonderful initiative.
