Our History -

We began this journey as The Great Jesus Christ Ministry in 2008. Our mission was to take the gospel in the city of Rochester. We began on foot in Rochester, NY, sharing the gospel, in front of the jail, on the streets , through cross walks, door to door evangelism and Bible distribution in the city of Rochester. In 2015 the Lord led the ministry to expand our mission utilizing the media more while we continue to witness. After a few years of changes and great maturity in Christ, the ministry began weekly Bible studies while we continue to live out our mission .
