GCM West (Alcolu)


On June 2nd, 2002, a word from the Lord came to Senior Pastor Derrick Fort concerning the future of Great Commission Ministries. GCM Central was to branch out and act as "the Vine” which is the source of life to the branches, and these branches would produce blossoms and eventually berries (fruit). This word from God challenged the people of GCM to make a deposit into the lives of others. The branch, being an extension of the vine would bring forth blossoms which marks the beginning of new life. This peak moment of development was totally supported by the current members of GCM.

In November of 2002 the people of GCM committed themselves to the first branch which has become known as GCM West. The first service was held in the old Ford building located at the 119 exit off I-95 in Manning. Since then much fruit has been produced, the purchase of a church in Alcolu, SC was made. A little over a year ago a new sanctuary was added due to even further church growth. Praise be to God!
