Rev. Martha Brown, Former Pastoral Care & Counseling Director,
Asbury Methodist Village, and Founding Member of GBCI
Responding to concerns about students' screen time overload and deep need for social interaction, GBCI moved its programs outdoors to engage with students in all kinds of activities: dancing, word games, laughing yoga, creative activities, etc.
We are proud to be accepted into the Catalogue for Philanthropy’s 2021-22 Class as One of the Best local nonprofits! The Catalogue believes in the power of small nonprofits to spark big change. And they believe in GBCI to continue to further that positive change, working each day to lift up, strengthen, and enrich our local community.
In January 2020, GBCI was recognized as a Generations United National Program of Distinction,
one of six programs selected for the designation.
This recognition is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of many individuals who support GBCI. We are tremendously grateful to our members, volunteers, donors, and community and founding partners!
