"GCF is a cutting edge ministry equipping Christian families to work together as a unit to
be world ambassadors for Christ. This ministry is effective and deserving of your support
as it sends families out to disciple other families on how to know Jesus and train their own
children in the Lord."
~ Christopher J. Klicka, Senior Counsel, Home School Legal Defense Association, Gainesville, VA.

heart for evangelism, beginning in their own living room and spreading over the neighbor's fence, into the
community, and to the world."
~ Bev Duerksen, Mother, Pastor's Wife, First UMC, Artesia, New Mexico

poorly. Bernie and Linda Beall have a successful track record as godly parents and mentors, and I am glad to
endorse their visionary ministry through Great Commission Families."
~ Pastor Gary Hicks, Brook Hill UMC, Frederick, Maryland
"As my wife observed godly practices in the Beall family, she was challenged to imitate what they were doing.
They provided good 'peer pressure' for me to grow and change as a godly husband and father. I am looking
forward to that 'peer pressure' impacting many more families to become "Great Commission Families."

"As the Lord drew me into full-time service after a career in the Navy, it would have been SO helpful to have

~ John Brown, Church Planter Pastor and Retired USN Officer, Keene, New Hampshire

than 25 years. Applying the simple biblical principles of winning, building and sending in our Lord's Great
Commission to God's design for the family is powerful and essential to reaching the world for Christ and transforming
society. The Beall's have consistently modeled the vision of Great Commission Families and have the
practical resources to equip others in this incredible kingdom building journey. May their tribe increase in this

for many years. They are a couple committed to seeing people transformed by the gospel and developing others
to join their efforts. Bernie and Linda are very intentional in what they do and how they influence others to
follow Jesus. They are amazing in how they weave Biblical truth into all aspects of life. I have grown in my
ability to work with and develop others as a result of my years working with Bernie and Linda."
