The Church Advocate, official publication of the Churches of God, General Conference exists to encourage an informed people to be the Church. It is designed to provide instruction, challenge and encouragement to the body of Christ as a whole, but also includes communication relevant to CGGC churches and membership. Published first as “The Gospel Publisher” in 1835, it was later published in 1846 under the current name. Even though it is one of our oldest publications, it is one of our freshest tools in encouraging the body of Christ to be Jesus’ hands and feet in ministry. This 16 page publication is published bi-monthly. Copies are available at most CGGC Churches.
