Testimonies

 

Testimonies encourage faithful believers to continue to pursue God’s plan for their lives. We invite you to read a few stories from missionaries, believers and pastors whose lives have been touched by First the Kingdom.

Trained Believers

“Never did I imagine myself walking the streets sharing the Gospel, and never did I imagine the overwhelming joy I experienced while doing it.” - Matt 

First-time Believers

"I am so thankful that my 7-year-old son had the opportunity to get involved with Gospel Colors Outreach this past year. As he learned the colors and memorized the verses, he began to realize that it all applied to him too- and he personally trusted Christ as his Savior! That was one of the biggest blessings of the whole year." - Jackie & son Connor

Evangelism Event

"My daughter, Krysta, and I had the opportunity to evangelize with GCO in a park in Oceanside. We got to share the Gospel with people we didn't know for the first time. People flocked to our table wanting to hear about who Jesus is. It was a day we will remember into eternity!" - Lara & daughter Krysta

Church Pastors

“As a direct result of our partnership with GCO, New Song has been able to lead over 5,000 people to Christ in the last three years. What could be better?” - Hal Seed, Sr. Pastor, New Song Community Church and author of The God Questions

Child Evangelism

“[My daughter] Hailey shared "the colors" with her class during show and tell. All 12 of her classmates said "yes" to accepting Jesus and Hailey led them in prayer. It was AMAZING to watch and brought her teacher and I both to tears. Thank you for helping her grow in her faith and the skills to share the good news with others!” - Jenn


“GCO takes the message of God’s salvation to the streets to share hope for people in need of his love and grace. Experiencing hundreds of men, women and children accepting Christ is the most beautiful work God has given us with the privilege to do. Every Christian should be encouraged to learn the simple presentation and join in the work of this worthy ministry.”  -Bonita

“My daughter, Krysta, and I had the opportunity to evangelize with GCO in a park in Oceanside. We got to share the Gospel with people we didn’t know for the first time. People flocked to our table wanting to hear about who Jesus is. It was a day we will remember into eternity!” -Lara

“My constant prayer for my children is that they will take their place in this world to win their generation for Christ.  The training from the Gospel Colors class and the park outreach equipped my ten-year old daughter to do what many adults have never done — to clearly share her faith and lead someone to Christ!” -Cynthia

“So glad my daughter had the opportunity to build such confidence in sharing the good news. I love the fact that she now LOVES sharing the gospel and will do so to anyone who will listen. What a great skill to have at such a young age. Thank you.” -Jenn

“As a direct result of our partnership with GCO, New Song has been able to lead over 5,000 people to Christ in the last three years. What could be better?” -Hal Seed, Sr. Pastor, New Song Community Church 2014

“I am humbled and honored to pray for GCO, their missionaries, mission trips and most of all for the Holy Spirit’s leading in everything they do, everyone they share Christ with, and the lives that are impacted by them on a daily basis. GCO is a huge blessing to our community. If you have not been on a Mission trip with GCO, I would encourage you too. It was a life changing experience for me, I am forever changed, and will be forever grateful. Thank you Jesus for GCO, continue to richly poor out your blessings upon this wonderful ministry!” -Rufina
