This is a God first organization. GPS is a great non-profit organization that is a ministry first and foremost. I have seen and heard how lives have been changed by the power of prayer. PJ listens to the clients and fills the food and personal care needs, and she also prays for those who ask for prayer. A lot of people do not realize how many facets there are to this organization, and the impact it has to this community. GPS provides the food pantry, personal care items, children programs, job skills program and case management for each individual that needs our services.

I recently heard of GPS and PJ. I went in to meet her. She is a blessing to be around. She's is always serving people who need help. I had volunteered with her. I watched how she was with her clients. Her clients are always made welcome as soon as they come in the door. I think what I like most is how it's only about the clients. I can't even begin to say enough about GPS and PJ. Thank you for all you do to help the people in need.

As a person serviced by this establishment, I can honestly say that they've helped me exponentially. The staff are fun and welcoming, the services they offer are both helpful and assorted. They've helped me in my time of need and I am thoroughly grateful.

My wife and I have always been pleased with the level of service and dedication GPS shows for those who need food assistance. Far from a stop to pick up some meals, PJ engaged my wife cordially every time she stopped in and made an uncommonly remarkable impression. When my wife offered to volunteer and told me PJ could use someone with my skills, I jumped at the prospect of being able to not only give back but further what PJ and GPS Ministries do.

Instead of being a place to drop in and donate a few hours, the culture here makes it so that even when we're not present we're still trying to find ways to help GPS. There is no question in my mind that my wife and I are dedicated to the cause not only because we ourselves have been in need and been helped, but because PJ is such an enthusiastic, efficient, and empathetic individual,

Being on this side of the desk has been an uplifting and educating experience. PJ cares for each client and grants them rights that often go unnoticed in other similar venues: privacy, respect, and friendliness.

I am a new volunteer at GPS Ministries. I have seen a true genuineness that this ministry, and the individuals that are involved, have for those who are going through difficult times. They give a great deal of themselves to accomplish what they can in each individual situation. They are very appreciative of the donations whether it be food , financial support, etc. that they receive to accomplish what's in their heart to do. I'm blessed to be a part of this ministry.

I am posting this review again because somehow I didn't get my name in there. As a board member I am constantly challenged by the leadership of GPS Ministries to be involved and to contribute in the process of carrying out the mission statement which is working to better lives and build relationships through non-judgmental love and support in the community. There's no skipping out of responsibilities in this non-profit, you're either in or out. That's accountability which is something that this world needs more of.

I came to know about GPS Ministeries through a family member. When I spoke with PJ about my life crisis, she offered prayers and support in a non judgemental environment. I support the fact that the services provided are Christian based. This community needs more God, acceptance and praise like GPS offers. God Bless. PJ, your ministry is in my prayers. Thank you for everything.

I love & respect what GPS Ministries stands for...Gods' People Serving. They're mission is to help everyone, with any need without question. GPS Ministries is and always will be led by GOD in everything they're mission stands for. There is no government involved. Pj Seals & her husband, Greg Seals founded GPS Ministries with the vision and guidance of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. If anyone is seeking assistance or prayer, GPS Ministries will provide all the above and much, much more.

I came to know about GPS MINISTRIES INC. in April 2013 when I needed assistance with food and hygiene items. As of May 2013, I was asked to be the Food Pantry Coordinator and I accepted that position with honor, However, I am presently the Director for Ministry Growth and Development. I love working at this ministry, it's an opportunity to be able to help others in the many ways I have also been helped by the loving founders and dedicated volunteers who selflessly give of they're time and talents. I just have to add that no one who works at GPS MINISTRIES INC. are paid. We are not government or state funded, We rely soley on people in community and businesses to donate. We also have several other programs that no other agency offers. We have a food pantry, kids snack-pack program, kids power hour, adult bible study, job skills program, life skills program and mommy's time-out that we offer to anyone in the community and surrounding areas FREE OF CHARGE. We are Gods People Serving (GPS).

I first came to know about GPS Ministries as a client, I needed assistance with food. While I was applying for assistance I asked if I could volunteer my time, I was welcomed with open arms by Rev. PJ Seals and also Rev. Virginia. They treated me like the child of God I am. I wasn't looked down upon or treated like I was just wanting a handout. I really believe in the genuine concern that this ministry has for everybody that comes through the doors, they are truly doing what Jesus has already done for His children and continues doing the Lord's Will for each and every person who asks for assistance, at GPS Ministries you will always be assisted no matter who you are,or what you're past is in life,where you come from,or what problems you may have. GPS Ministries is so much more than a food panty. Programs offered there are : job skills program, kid's power hour, kid's snack-pack program, spiritual counseling/guidance and the give-back program. Since I started volunteering in April of this year, I am now GPS Ministries Food Pantry Coordinator and Iam also en-rolled in the Annoited Learning Institute instructed by PJ Seals(ceo/founder of GPS Ministries and author of Annoited Learning Institute). We are GOD'S PEOPLE SERVING (GPS). We are not a part of the Illinois Food Bank, we operate soley on the donations and love-gifts we receive through anonymous donations and grants. I love being a part of this ministry and helping others as I have been so graciously helped. Everyone who works at GPS Ministries are volunteers, we are paid in blessings through our Lord Jesus.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change anything because we are blessed by God.

GPS Ministries has been a huge blessing for me in a variety of ways. Not only did i recieve a love gift of food,i also have been very blessed to meet some very wonderful,GOD centered people who have invited me to help them serve the needs of our community....What a blessing to be able to give back to my community and to GOD what was so freely given to me. GPS Ministries have blessed me to be the Food Pantry Cooridinator at they're 334 NO. 12th st. location (Quincy,Il.) PJ Seals & Rev. Virginia are two very special ladies,so blessed and grateful to have met them both.
