Global Christian Centre Ministries (GCCM) whose headquarters is located in Calgary, AB, was registered in Canada in January 2001 as a Charitable Organization. GCCM was formed to enable the missionary work being done in Albania since 1995 to continue and to form a support base and covering for those ministering there. Over the years it has expanded and has been focusing on promoting a natural and spiritual balance in countries such as Albania, Kosovo, Romania and the Philippines, serving the local and national communities focusing on providing services to families and individuals in need. It has a Board of 5 Directors who oversee and provide leadership all its activities.
GCCM through its Albanian organization, Durres Christian Centre Foundation (DCCF) has been acknowledged by the Albanian government as an organization that has succeeded to develop effective leaders, contributing towards poverty reduction and economic development of the nation through its programs and services.
Our vision for the future is to see the network grow through a co-ordinated effort in other nations. Our newest venture as of March 2017 is in Calgary offering services that will empower one neighbourhood at a time.
