Nationally broadcast TV program, overseen by the Elders of the Summerdale church of Christ. Billy Lambert has been the speaker on GTKYB since 2006. Prior to that, GTKYB was a local program on the greater Gulf Coast since 1985. In 2020 we expanded to weekly blogs and a daily podcast that was placed as a Top 10 podcast for Spotify in 2022. A free Bible course is offered in each broadcast. Lives have been changed, souls have been saved, & God has been glorified! Please visit the GTKYB web site.
Gulf Coast Bible Camp is a summer camp and retreat facility that is affiliated with the Churches of Christ. The camp is located outside of Lucedale, Mississippi off Highway 98 near the Mississippi-Alabama state line. The camp regularly serves congregations from Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Our children attend the Baldwin County week at GCBC.
Since our founding in 1945, Mount Dora Children’s Home has served as a Christ-centered haven for children and families who find themselves in need. This is a place where children are loved because we believe every child is a gift from God, made in His image, and deserving of a good start in life.
The North Alabama Christian Children’s Home is a 501©3 Group Residential Home that is licensed by the state of Alabama to provide 24/7 care for up to 22 children. They seek to provide a “safe haven” for children who have come from an environment where they have been abused, abandoned, and/or neglected. Support of the organization comes from congregations of the churches of Christ, the state of Alabama, and a host of compassionate, supportive individuals and businesses.
Snook Christian Academy, formerly known as Alabama Gulf Coast Christian Academy, provides a first class education in a small school setting. Explore their website and learn more about how your child can grow at SCA, not only in academics and athletics, but most of all in their spirituality. Our ministers currently volunteer as Bible teachers, chaplains, chapel speakers and mentors for the school.
TITUS Camp (Teens In Training for Useful Service) began in 2005 on the campus of Heritage Christian University. It exists for the purpose of training young people to be better equipped for Christian service. Every young person is put into a spiritually enriched environment where they are given the tools and training they need to better serve our Creator. They are given a topic to research and encouraged to prepare a lesson to be delivered on the final day of camp. Several local churches sponsor these young people and allow them to use their talents before graduation.
