Our annual Global Impact Celebration is what fuels missions at Shades. GIC is the largest single event we host annually as a church and is one the most exciting weeks each year in the life of our church. At GIC, we host more than 50 missionaries and church planters from around the world.
This five-day conference allows our church the opportunity to learn about the work of each missionary and church planter, hear their stories, share in their victories and disappointments, minister to them and their families, allow them to minister to us and develop relationships and partnerships. We encourage every member at Shades and any interested guests or visitors to come be a part of this exciting week in the life our church!
If you would like to provide a gift card to help meet needs identified by our GIC missionaries, you can sign up here. Your gift will not be tax deductible.
GIC is coming, and plans are underway for one of the greatest weeks of our year. One way you can be involved during this week is by hosting a missionary family. We need approximately 30 host homes, and the deadline to register is December 4. Click here to sign up today!
