Give Yourself Away (GYA)


Give Yourself Away

Give Yourself Away (G.Y.A.) is a generosity movement led by Pastor Smokie Norful who is living a life of generosity. His vision is to encourage others to "Live to be missed" by giving their time, talent and treasure to enhance the lives of others, expecting nothing in return.

Meeting needs and empowering individuals and families is a part of our vision and mission. Over the years, God has enabled us to be a blessing to people when they needed it most.  


What is Give40?

Each member of our church is asked to serve within the community for at least 40 hours in the calendar year.

40hours is only 3.33 hours per month, which is less than 1% of the time God has given to you (.47% to be exact).

God has given us 8,448 hours in a year... that's 704 hours in a month. We are asking each person to "Give40" hours throughout the year.
