History

History of GeoCachers4Christ

GeoCachers 4 Christ began as a simple concept when my family and I joined the GeoCaching sport on 17th May 2007 and I started looking for a Christian group to join. All I wanted, initially, was a place to gather with other Christian GeoCachers so we could get to know each other.

After several weeks of finding no active Christian fellowships, and several conversations in the GeoCaching Forums, I felt called to open up a fellowship for Christian GeoCachers. I then had to determine what to call this new group. After toying with several different names I finally settled on the simple 'Geocachers For Christ' name. Initially I knew that it had to be a basic site with a simple free forum that we could grow from. On the 30th of May 2007 I opened the first website geocachers4christ.ipbfree.com and posted the link to it in a few forums.

Those first few hours were fearful as I waited to see whether this was the Lords will or not. That first night there were 3 new members, the next day there was one new member and by the end of the first week there were 9 members. By the end of the first month we had 15 members and we've been growing ever since.

Since GC4C's inception we've grown to a fellowship of just shy of 150 members from approximately 8 countries 30 US states and 7 Canadian States. We have installed an Executive Committee and developed a service team of about 11 members, undergone an official name change from 'Geocachers For Christ' to 'GeoCachers 4 Christ', and developed a progressive series of Logo's that developed from a crude scratch image to a very professional logo.

The Lord blessed us greatly as we took another step forward by purchasing the 'www.geocachers4christ.com' domain name in October of 2007. That step was the first funds spent on the website and we upgraded to the website you see now in March of 2008... We ask that you keep us in your prayers as we continue to move forward in our mission of supporting Christian GeoCachers through fellowship and encouragement.
