Grace Community Fellowship was established in Harmons, Jamaica in 2014. The church is currently led by Pastor Paul Blake JNR, who has served as the lead pastor for over three years. GCF currently has a Children’s Ministry, Ladies’ Ministry, Community Relief Ministry, Musicians, Secretary, and Treasurer as well as a multi-person Leadership Team to oversee all these areas. In addition to Sunday service, GCF hosts meetings and events throughout the week such as Bible Studies, Prayer Meetings, and Choir Rehearsals. The church also puts on monthly events in the community.
GCF initially began holding services and weekly meetings in the Harmony House. Over the years, church membership has grown and the congregation now meets in the WBOTJ Education Center.
With continued steady growth in the past several years, GCF has again outgrown its current space to the point of now needing its own church building! WBOTJ has secured the land to build the new church building on and the plans are in motion. The goal for the new church structure is a multi-faceted building that will enable GCF to expand its reach in the community even more. If you would like to contribute to the fundraising efforts for Grace Community Fellowship's new church building, please make a donation designated to "Grace Community Fellowship Building" or participate in our annual Kansas City area Golf Tournament fundraiser happening summer 2022!
Won By One To Jamaica will be hosting our two annual golf tournament fundraisers this summer. We hope you will join us! We are looking for business sponsors, participants, and personal donors, so participation in these events is available to everyone!
If you’ve been to Harmons, you’ve most likely met Big Man. Big Man has been working for Won By One to Jamaica for over 10 years and now holds the role of Jamaican Ministry Associate. He is a man who lives by the motto: “Love God, Love People, Make a Difference.” Following this motto led him to start a ministry in April 2017 called Harmons Hope Outreach Ministry. His ministry aims to reach the unreached and provide basic needs to individuals in the community. He and his team of 9 other like minded individuals provide grocery distributions, medical assistance as well as senior and shut-in breakfast supplies. They have created an Education Grant which sponsors children from the two schools in Harmons and provides a one-time financial sponsorship to assist students in their transition to high school. Their newest project is called “Teach One To Fish,” in which they empower members of the community by providing them with a means to provide for themselves.

Our new Education Center was dedicated with a grand opening celebration on October 12th, 2018. A big thank you to everyone who supported our fundraising campaign! Since the opening, nearly 30 students are tutored here each week through our tutoring program, and the dedicated classroom space has been a huge blessing.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us -Hebrews 12:1
