Pastor John and Yvonne Townsend

Hello, I am Pastor John Townsend and this is my wife Yvonne. We welcome you to the Altoona First GBC website.

Please check us out and make note of the times of service and activities that we’re planning, because; you are invited to come and join us at any time.

Also, I would love to hear from you so please feel free to contact me with your comments, needs, or prayer requests.

Our ministry goal here at Altoona First GBC is to raise up champions for Christ. Our method to accomplish this is to get “Back to the Basics” in teaching our adults and especially our young people.

My plan to accomplish this is through discipleship; so if you’re a child of God who wishes to grow in Christ and wants a place to home your spiritual gifts and talents this is the place for you. I invite you to join us as our team seeks to minister to Altoona and the surrounding area; in and through the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
