Equipping Leaders With the Knowledge of God's Everlasting Word

Just One of G.I.F.T. Goals


Every since G.I.F.T. Ministries started back in 1978 in Upper Heyford, England, our mission has always been to equip leaders for service. Now through our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, we're able to go even further in accomplishing this.

In January of 2014, The Gospel Inspirational Fellowship Tabernacle(G.I.F.T.), held it's first satelite seminary class through International Seminary of Florida. Every year following that first class, our classes has grown, along with the knowledge of God's Word.
Listed in the next section are the programs and courses offered at G.I.F.T. Ministries.
