Testimonies About GRCM


“God loves you Daniel”, I said as I reached out to a sad and rejected little boy. “No he don’t,” said Daniel. “God loves you Daniel”, I repeated. “No he don’t”, said Daniel. I said, “God does love you”! “You know how I know”? Because the Bible says He loves you and the Bible is true.

Circle Club is a wonderful place to share God’s love through an afternoon snack, a hug, a word of encouragement and to share from the Bible how much God loves children. Many children in my group have come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. I myself attended a neighborhood Bible Club as a child. God used this in my life as a child from a good family, but one which did not attend church.”

Doris Roberts, Denman Avenue Baptist Church


“To all who love children: KSWP Radio, under Lufkin Educational Broadcasting Foundation, began broadcasting in 1985. GRCM aired its very first children’s radio program, Kids Club, during our first week of broadcasting. Now twenty years later, the ongoing ministry partnership continues through “Stories to Live By” which airs weekly on 91.9 KAVX, KSWP’s sister station created in 1998. GRCM is still one of the most effective evangelism outreaches to children we have seen.

As a pastor, GRCM has been welcomed in our church many times. The enthusiasm and love for children makes this ministry effective in reaching children of all ages. Now, GRCM faithfully continues to demonstrate leadership with its vision to reach a second generation. I whole heartedly support their efforts and recommend this ministry to any and all who want to reach children with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Dwyan Calvert – Pastor – KSWP Christian Radio Founder


“I am an avid supporter of Gloria Russell Children’s Ministry, whose faithful devotion to the Gospel for children is evidenced by the thousands of young people they have led into the Kingdom of God”.

“I want to encourage you in supporting the life changing ministry of Gloria Russell Children’s Ministry of East Texas. This ministry has been faithful and consistent in its message and heart in reaching out to all children, regardless of race or ethnic background, and teaching them about the life change that comes from a walk with God through His Son Jesus Christ.

Gloria Russell has been at the helm of this ministry from its inception and has tirelessly worked to promote and defend the need for children to learn about Christ and know that God loves children. Whether it is backyard Bible clubs, after school Bible times, VBS training or special Saturday Civic Center events, this ministry has worked to help children.

Harmony Hill is proud to be a supporter of this ministry that is changing the face of Angelina County one child at a time. I hope that others will join with our fellowship family in helping Gloria and her ministries reach all the children of East Texas.”

John Greene – Senior Pastor – Harmony Hill Baptist Church


“My wife and I have admired, supported and prayed for the work done by Gloria Russell Children’s Ministry for about ten years. God personally touched our family through that ministry six years ago when our grand daughter received Christ while at a GRCM children’s summer camp. This ministry is a powerful force in advancing the Kingdom of God.”

Dr. C.H. Cathcart – Family Medical Practice


“When I was 14, I was given the wonderful opportunity to be trained to share the Gospel with GRCM. This training, along with the help of the Holy Spirit, helped me lead over 100 children to Christ during the next few years. Recently, I was on the streets of Mexico sharing the Gospel. I was asked to tell a Bible story to the children and invite them to begin a relationship with Jesus. There, behind an old van, I prepared in under 30 minutes to share a story that was already inside me due to the equipping I had received with GRCM. Eight children were birthed into the Kingdom of God for the first time that day.”

Jonathan Baldwin, former Teen Missionary with GRCM
