God has made prayer a primary means of communication and of accessing His guidance, provision, wisdom and strength. For those seeking a closer relationship with God prayer is key. The prayer of others whose heart is God’s makes for a good team. There are people at GBC who will pray with you, pray for you, show you how to pray, join you in prayer. This priceless resource is available just for the asking.


Paraklesis is an incredible personal and dynamic concept. Jesus said He would send a Helper like Himself to come alongside us and to guide, teach, counsel, build up and encourage. In Greek He was called the Paraklete, and He is the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ followers were called to come alongside one another to help and encourage in the power of the Holy Spirit too. At GBC we have small groups that meet on Sunday mornings for all ages and stages for the purpose of paraklesis. The groups are open to all who would like to participate.


GBC’s pastor is available for counseling, spiritual guidance or one on one spiritual development. Call the church for more information 918-825-5147.


Discipleship is basically a life of following Jesus Christ, learning from Him, developing deeper love for God, getting better at loving others and discovering how to live life God’s way everyday. There are people at GBC whose heart for God and their journey in following Christ have proven them as disciples and they have a heart for helping others in this journey as well. If interested in discipleship contact GBC.
