DBC hosts a Global Impact Celebration (GIC) in the fall of each year. It’s a time of celebration for what God has done over the past year and a celebration in expectation of what God is going to do in the coming year.
Our prayer rally is the kickoff for thirty days of corporate prayer leading up to our celebration.
Laughter and tears are shared as we gather to show our love and appreciation to our missionaries. It’s also a time of fellowship, sharing and feeling God’s heartbeat for missions.
Showing our love for God and God’s Word through giving to a special offering, individually each person/family is challenged to seek God’s direction concerning their part of this corporate project. While the project varies from year to year, the goal of reaching the lost, the unreached and the least reached by proclaiming the gospel throughout the world remains the number-one criteria in selection of each year‘s project. From building Bible institutions to translating and purchasing Scripture, the project is always met with great enthusiasm.
