Greg and Pam Ayers were faced with a life altering decision. After the loss of two very close relationships they asked God for a clearer and more meaningful purpose in their lives. Both Greg and Pam’s careers were very successful, but did not have an impact in God’s Kingdom. God dealt with their hearts and in the fall of 1995 Greg and Pam both resigned executive management positions to pursue full time pastoral ministry. Throughout the next three years God began to instill and birth a vision in them that would be the catalyst for an extreme walk of faith.
GAP Ministries began by caring for foster children in the home of our founders, and that aspect of the ministry has grown over the years, depending on the need, from 9 to 14 family style group homes where the love of God is shared with the children and teens each day.
GAP also licenses and trains individuals and couples to care for foster children to increase the number of homes where these children can live and thrive while away from their own family.
Finally, to better deal with the root causes of the foster care crisis, GAP also has programs to provide supervised visitation and parent aid for the birth parents. It is our desire and goal to see healthy restoration of families when possible.
