Church missions

GPI, or Global Proclamation Initiative, is the missions program of Southbridge Church that focuses supporting missions endeavors that focus on proclaiming the life changing Gospel and love of Christ to the entire world. In Mark 16:16 Jesus left us with this mission, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” While we at Southbridge Church have several programs to accomplish that mission in Orland Park and the surrounding suburbs, GPI is our means of supporting those who are proclaiming the Gospel far beyond the four walls of our church. Below you will find featured several of the missionaries and endeavors we support as a church.
