Dear Gospel Crusade Ministers,


The Apostle Paul spoke of “perilous times” and here we are in the middle of them!  When a major country like Russia is invading, destroying, and pillaging a neighboring country without accountability or consequences, we are in perilous times!  When a High School football coach is fired for simply kneeling alone in prayer after a game, win or lose, and the issue is in the Supreme Court, we are in perilous times!  When our Christian nation sees no problem with teaching kindergarteners, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders to question their gender and understand homosexuality, without parental consent, we are in perilous times!


These are blatant attacks on our Judeo-Christian values as we watch our Christian nation sink deeper into a sea of debauchery and godlessness.  The spiritual battle between good and evil is raging.  Our mission as ministers of the Gospel is more relevant than ever.  The Gospel is Good News and it’s righteousness in the presence and power of a living God!  


Our next GCMA Breakfast Gathering at Christian Retreat is:

                        Saturday, June 18th, 9:00 AM, in Agape Gardens Dining Room


Come prepared to share what God is doing in your ministry.  The world is in chaos, but the ministry outreaches of Gospel Crusade are forcefully advancing.  Let’s gather to encourage one another in these perilous times. 

  • ·      To everyone one who attends, I’d like to give a DVD Copy of our founder, Gerald Derstine’s last public message, given this January at the Homecoming Revival Fire Panel Discussion.
  • ·      We will also have a table for you to display any of your own new books, CDs, or resources.  
  • ·      You’re also encouraged to bring anyone you’d like to introduce to GCMA.
  • ·      Remember, Gospel Crusade Ministerial Association is a network of ministers under the authority of Jesus Christ for Covering, Accountability, Resources, and Encouragement


Please RSVP at this link  and register yourself and your group to be with us on June 18th.  We will have breakfast together (cost is $10) and enjoy a time of spiritual impartation.  Your ministry is needed today more than ever!


Much Love and Blessings,

Phil Derstine
