Through BGMC you can learn how to PRAY, GIVE, and GO!
Pray: You will learn what God's Word says about praying and about His will for your life and the lives of others. You will learn how to pray for your friends, neighbors, missionaries, and the spiritually lost people of the world. Click here to learn more about prayer and how to pray for specific needs.
Give: You will learn how to be used by God by giving your time, talents, energy, and offerings-so that others at home and in foreign countries can learn about Jesus. Click here to learn more about how to give of yourself to the work of the Lord and give to BGMC.
Go: This part of BGMC is where you become a missionary to your world (your school, community, and country) and to the world (the foreign countries around the globe). You will learn how to be an E-LIFE Kid (E = Eternal) so that other kids at school and in your community can see Jesus in you and want to live for Jesus, too. You will learn how to GO by helping in outreach efforts in your community and in missions trips within your state. You will also learn how to GO by raising funds so that our foreign missionaries can reach the world for Jesus. Click here to learn more about E-LIFE and becoming a missionary to your world!

Missionaries Need BGMC!
BGMC touches every area of the world by providing our missionaries with the supplies and tools they need to reach out to the lost through evangelism and discipleship.
Missionaries desperately need to buy supplies like:
Sunday School literature
Library books and study books for Bible colleges
Computers, printers, and copy machines
Video equipment and DVDs, audio equipment and CDs
Puppets, costume animals, clown supplies,
- Water wells and water buckets,
Plus lots, lots more!
BGMC provides whatever missionaries need, where they need it, and when they need it. Many missionaries would be at a loss without BGMC.
BGMC especially targets the kids of the world by providing for street kids, orphanages, feeding programs, school supplies, helping send kids to camps, making children's TV programs and videos, and lots more! BGMC has even translated children's resources into many different languages, such as: the JBQ program, Royal Rangers, Missionettes, children's church curriculum, and Sunday School materials.
Kids Need BGMC!
BGMC is the missions program for kids in the Assemblies of God.
BGMC is more than a giving program; it's also a missions education program. BGMC is equipping kids like you to know, to care, to pray, to give, and to reach the lost. Through BGMC you'll learn about countries, people groups, and missionaries. You'll also learn about the "lost" and how important it is to be a witness.
BGMC has a two-fold purpose:
To reach the kids of the world.
To create a heart of compassion in kids.
Missions Awareness: Through BGMC you can be introduced to a fascinating, culturally diverse world; to the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and the way of life in another culture. This will help you to understand the different religious beliefs of the world and become aware of the many people who are spiritually lost. These people do not have an adequate explanation of the gospel to help them make a decision to follow Christ. That's where BGMC can help.
Missions Concern: Through BGMC you can learn who God is and the part that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit play in missions. It's this part of missions education that will introduce you to Christ's Great Commission.
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you" (Matthew 28:19, 20).
Missions Stewardship: Through BGMC you can become involved in the Great Commission (which is God's challenge to reach the world for Him). How? By giving your time, talents, and treasures to reach the lost. Within this goal you can learn about prayer and personal evangelism (sharing your faith with others) and in giving offerings once a month to reach the lost.
Did you know? Many of our Assemblies of God missionaries were called to be missionaries while they were kids just like you! God wants you to keep your heart open to His call.
As you can see, BGMC is a great program for everyone!
