I've been aquainted with this ministry since Jan. 2013. I started off as a client then started volunteering for Gps Ministries as a the food pantry coordinator then promoted to director of ministry growth & development. I no longer volunteer there, however, I donate as often as I can. Pj & her husband, Pastor Greg are genuine vessels for Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. GPS Ministries is one of a kind. I am still a client and I am very grateful for all they do for me and my community especially the children. GPS Ministries is much more than a ordinary food pantry, they offer many helpful services, such as, computer skills, resume preparation, life skills, Kids Power Hour (bible lessons), spiritual counseling and most important, Prayers. If you are in a crisis of any kind or just need a helping hand, please call and make an appt. ( ask for Pj) 217-214-0904. OFFICE HOURS : Tues.-Thurs. 10:30am-4:00pm and Fri. 10:30am-2:00pm . Anyone needing assistance must call and make an appt. to receive any type of assistance. NO EXCEPTIONS. Appointments are made for you're privacy and so your needs as an individual are met.

I came to GPS MINISTRIES as a client in 2013, I joined this ministry as a volunteer in many different areas, I don't volunteer at this time, however I still do what I can to help any way I can, wether its food donations, monetary ect.This ministry is very different from those in this community and surrounding communities.When you come to this ministry (GPS) you get fed Spiritually as well, and you're not treated as statistic, you're treated like a child of GOD and you become part of a family regardless of who you are or what your past may be. GPS MINISTRIES is more than a food pantry, they offer a large range of services, including job skills,adult bible study,children snack pack program, kids power hour ect. If you would like to help this community, start with this ministry. Check out the website and learn what they are all about.

I came to GPS Ministries over a year ago for help. I was welcomed like I was family. I felt so warm at heart I was told about their volunteer services so I signed up. I felt I could help as well so I started to be a donor monetary and food areas. I help deliver food to our elderly that can not get to us. The more I help the more I receive from with in. I am now a Board Member as well as volunteer and donor. I pray that every one who reads this can find the same inner peace I have by helping where God has put me.

I learned of GPS MINISTRIES INC. from my "true" number one Best Friend Kessha, she told me of the wonderful staff & how they are here to help those in need. Of course I was hesitate about doing so simply because, I like most people find it hard to ask for anything let alone help. I think pride had/has more to do with it more than anything, but of course she convinced me to come. The truth is that I did so simply to shut her up, but when I got here and seen how sincere the staff is about helping I ended up volunteering and at this point I am grateful & thankful that I did. I feel that by doing so not only am I giving back in some small way, but at the same time somewhere along the line I too will be blessed.

I was in desperate need of help for thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for my family (8) that has been struggling for a while now. I was searching for help and found GPS Ministries. Mrs. PJ and the girls were very sweet and loving to me. I have never volunteered for anything before but felt I needed to be here for them as they were for me. I was very blessed to have met them all. I would recommend them to anyone. I have found a mom and a home that I would have never found if I would have never met them!

I became a volunteer for the GPS Ministry because of the way they work with people. I walked in for assistance and I felt like someone was holding my hand guiding me through my troubles. They listened to and assisted with advise. I was so overwhelmed, I wanted to help others like they helped me.

If the world had more facilities with such genuine people the world would be a better place , people wouldn't just be ordinary people but that of a hard working and caring community. The people at GPS MINISTRIES are just ordinary people who have put forth countless hours to help others. I love the give back program! My family fell through many rough patches last year and we turned to GPS for help. I have recieved a lot of help for my family, donated, and volunteered my time as well. I was so blessed to not only recieve help but blessed to have donated food items since I know that by giving back it was helping out some one else who were going through a hard time too! I loved seeing all the people who were all smiles when we donated a few truck loads of patatoes it was well worth it just knowing that I could be a part of helping some one and blessing them. You can read all the reviews on here but you will never know the full efffect it will positively have on you until you expierence it yourself. GPS is always looking for donations and volunteers that way we can all come together to help one another.

Some agencies look down on you or try to force their ideology on you when you need help, but when I went to GPS ministries I felt very welcome. They were so warm and kind, and great with my baby. They even helped me get my things to the car because I had my hands full. I'm so glad people like these are helping Quincy.
