Location, location, location! There are nearly 3 million people living in the Tampa Bay area. There are hundreds of churches throughout the region. GTD is a specialized ministry that provides Christ-centered outdoor adventures. Of course we host events for churches throughout the United States, but our primary church participation comes from the Tampa Bay area. One of the many things we are concentrating on during our 52 Days is developing our marketing focus. Unfortunately, GTD is one of the best kept secrets in our own area. We constantly hear pastors say, "I've never heard of GTD. If I had known about you guys we would have been doing events with you years ago." Our goal is to get the word out about GTD. We are a tried and true ministry that God uses to impact lives... and churches need to know about us. Currently we are collecting data about the bay area churches so we can formulate an effective marketing strategy to get the word out about GTD. As we develop this strategy we are also asking our GTDers to let their churches, pastors, youth pastors, and group leaders know about our ministry and all that we offer. We would love to meet with them and share with them what God is doing through Going The Distance Adventure Ministry. It's an exciting time to be a part of GTD!
