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).

my family has been a client here since 2013. when you walk in you are greeted with a smile and pure love. pj seals has you come in by appointment so she can offer prayers and privacy. she also offers personal care items and job skills classes. it felt good because she really cares about the community and you know it. I admire her because she doesn't judge anyone and she truly cares about helping you and letting you know you are special

i came in for assistance for food and personal care items when i first moved to quincy il . i was at one of the lowest times in my life i came home to bury my mother and it took all the money i had. Ms PJ was so kind and loving. she prayed with me and put me on a crisis list and showed me so much moral support and helped with much needed groceries. never once did i feel like i was being judged or looked down on. i was a client and now im a volunteer. i admire ms pj she has a very caring soul

These People run a tight ship, nothing is wasted. Great care is given that everything is used and given in the proper way. Integrity is the best word I could use to describe Pastors Greg & PJ Seals who operate this ministry. Their non-judgemental desire to help all those who come to them is a beacon of light in a dark world. I am humbled and consider it a privilege to be associated with them. Thank You Pastors Greg $ PJ for all that you do and teach by example.

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.
