The Mission of The Grand Old Gospel Fellowship is threefold: We exist to Plant Churches, Prepare Leaders, and Proclaim the Gospel until the entire world hears. All of our ministries are built from one or more of these three essential pursuits. We hope that you will join with us in prayer and support as we "Communicate the Word of Truth to a World in Trouble!"
From the very beginning of the GOGF in 1961 under the direction of my father Dr. B. Sam Hart, the establishment of badly needed bible teaching churches in the urban centers of our country has been a high priority. Today we have fifthteen churches in our network and seek with God’s help to see a new work started each year.
In many countries around the world as well as right here in the urban centers of America, pastors are lacking in effective training. Many of these men love the Lord, and know the word, and with just a little help and training have increased their ability to minister to the people in their societies. This has been a very fruitful ministry as we conduct 3 training conferences each year in developing countries.
Our ministry to the orphans in the Hart Children’s Homes, which have been established in Jamaica and India, have also proven to be a place where leaders are prepared for the future. The Brad–Ferne Hart Memorial Scholarship which help needy young men and women through accredited bible schools has also become an integral part of our strategy to prepare leaders for the ministry of tomorrow.
Proclaiming the Gospel
The Grand Old Gospel Hour has been heard across America and around the world on hundreds of radio stations over the last 53years. As a weekly half hour broadcast the Grand Old Gospel Hour has proven to be a powerful tool of ministry to the believer as well as the unsaved. The introduction of Drama and a few format changes have enabled the broadcast to keep up with the changing culture of our contemporary world.
The use of the internet in the spreading of the gospel has exploded over the last decade. Today many more people from around the world are able to be reached by this medium than ever before. Our website has literally become a link to missions for many Christians who are concerned about the salvation of souls and the edifying of the Church. We have created a one stop website where you can find links to other important sites and information keeping you abreast of what is happening through the GOGF Ministries. The latest addition to our online ministry is GOGF-TV our own channel which can be accessed from our website and which presents sound bible teaching without compromise.
Gospel crusades were a favorite for my father and very effective in the 50’s and 60’s. The fact is that they are not as effective today. However in many other countries the ability to present the gospel in a community wide crusade is still a very viable means of proclaiming the gospel. Therefore when we conduct our training conferences in these countries the pastors there often participate in an area wide crusade that results in hundreds of professions of faith. By whatever means the GOGF Ministries will be committed to proclaiming the Good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
