The Mandate from Father GOD!

GCU Vision

What We Do

  • As in all things there must be a beginning, GCU (Great Commission United) is no exception. Our training classes started over 20 years ago out of necessity. As the ministry was growing, discipleship was mandatory in order for us to stay equipped to do the work of the Holy Spirit in the earth....​

How We Do It

  • GCU trains, ordains, licenses, and sends ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ into all the world.  GCU has a platform that brings unity to the Body of Christ so that the will of  Father GOD manifests here on the earth...

Legal Bits


Chaplains throughout history have served in many capacities and venues to include government, the military, law enforcement, corrections, and hospitals.


Some are paid chaplains or chaplains that work in an official capacity or have duties relating to the above venues.


The chaplain’s duty in most of these settings is to provide spiritual counsel and comfort when needed.


Many chaplains are trained in other specialties to include emergency first responder training in the case of an actual crisis involving life-threatening situations.


Chaplains are most important in the event that a crisis has occurred in the workplace to provide comfort and consolation to those in need of it.


We at GCU firmly believe in our chaplains and the benefit of having a chaplain or chaplains on staff for the benefit of all.


GCU chaplain understands the value and necessity to follow the facility or organizations chain of command.


Chaplains are a great resource for upper management especially in the area of encouraging positive morale amongst all employees, inmates, or patients.


Chaplains also provide upper management or governmental officials with another set of eyes and ears. Chaplains are most beneficial in the area of stress reduction.


Chaplains in stricter environments such as the military, law enforcement – corrections, and hospitals are held to a higher scrutiny and must be above reproach in all matters.


Continuing education is a priority for GCU chaplains, to stay abreast of current changes within their field of service so that they can be more effective in all they do for their employer as well as those under their care and supervision.
