Our Story

behind the scenes at Gaingive

We Believe

At Gaingive, we believe in introducing people to a lifestyle of giving in a more natural, less invasive way; where people don’t feel forced or pressured to give, but rather give in a way that doesn’t cost them anything. 

We believe that once hearts are open and actively giving through ordinary day to day activities like shopping, the joy and habit of giving spreads to other areas of life. Not only do we believe it, but we are blessed to see it happen every day, and we’re obsessively passionate about it!

Mission

Our mission is not only to help people achieve the joy and fulfillment that giving brings to our lives, but also to bless those on the receiving end more abundantly!

We’re excited to simplify giving and fundraising for everyone through our website, app, and community.

Our Beginning

We stop at nothing

What happens when you bring together 54 people that love Jesus and send them to every corner of the Globe for a year? Big dreams and a whole lot of malaria!

We Love To Serve

In 2017, this team of believers took a leap of faith, in obedience to the calling they had received, and gave away all they had to serve others in the name of Jesus in the poorest parts of the world.

We Lead With Faith

3 months into their journey, West Africa hit the team hard with malaria (a parasitic infection carried by mosquitos).

Josh Pareja, the founder of Gaingive, was affected the worst, contracting the parasite a total of 4 times.

We Keep It Simple

Love God and love people.

God doesn’t call us to be fancy, He calls us to be obedient!

God speaks in funny ways! It only took until I was on my death bed for the 4th time for Him to put the Idea of Gaingive on my heart. We had been traveling around to some pretty poverty stricken areas, seeing churches and ministries struggle to keep the doors open because of the lack of financial support. And yeah, I just felt it in my heart that, since it all belongs to God anyways, we might as well get creative about how people support ministries. In the coming months was really when it was revealed to us just how powerful this could be, not only for financial support to those who could really use it, but more importantly to introduce a giving lifestyle to a lot of people. “

“We were pretty extreme back then; we gave away everything we had, and it was awesome and brought us so much joy! We get that not everyone is called to live a life like that, but man what if we could get them hooked on giving in a way that doesn’t cost them a thing?!”
