About Us

The Get Real Story

It all started on May 16, 2001, in a field at Banks County High School in tiny Homer, Georgia.  That night brought together almost 5,000 people from all over Northeast Georgia.  It was at that moment we knew God was establishing something that was beyond our ability or thoughts.  Soon after that historic night, Get Real Ministries was established. 

Get Real is a non-profit 501c3 Christian Mission organization who offers extraordinary mission opportunities to ordinary people.  We have 18 years of established relationships in all of our mission locations- Kentucky, New Orleans, Jamaica and Georgia.  We believe in sharing the message of Hope in Christ through building relationships with those we meet. 

1 Thessalonians 2:8: Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.  

CORE VALUES

LOVE GOD.  LOVE PEOPLE. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself. 

Luke 10:27

RELATIONSHIPS. MISSIONS. LIFE.

Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well.  1 Thessalonians 2:8

ABOUT US

 

  • We believe that Jesus was God's only Son, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins and rose from the dead, therefore offering us the free gift of eternal life. 
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and believe in the standards it sets forth for building our lives and ministry, following the words of Jesus of going into the world and telling the Good News. (Mark 16:15)
  • We believe that all people are called to experience a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus by accepting His gift of forgiveness of sins and then growing into a deeper walk with Him through fellowship with the Holy Spirit, studying God's Word, prayer and fellowship with other believers.  (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 2:44)

Why go where we go?

Relationships since 2001

At the beginning of Get Real, God began to identify specific locations where we should go. The locations were New Orleans, Kentucky, Jamaica and here at home. We believe that relationships are the desire of God’s heart therefore we have continued to deepen our roots in each location so that we would have the opportunity to share the gospel by sharing our lives with them.  


 Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well. 1 Thessalonians 2:8


 You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:8
