Empowering  — Equipping — Sending


We partner with Gospel for Asia in the digging of wells to provide clean, pure water to a village for a lifetime. A church is near by and a minister assigned to the village  ministers to the villagers and the unsaved just as Jesus did as they come daily for water.Above is a Jesus Well like those being dug by the GCEPC. "Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:13-14
