God's Gamers is a safe, loving community focused on nurturing one another, and fostering an atmosphere of learning, growth, & faith. We are here to provide Christian gamers with a non-toxic place to game, grow, play and pray with and for each other.
God's Gamers seeks to share & uphold Biblical truth, & encourage fellow Christian gamers to be examples of Christ in the gamerverse. We strive to be a support system for fellow Christian gamers on their faith journey.
JeanneDArcc, Founder of GG, started streaming on Twitch, first putting together intense sermon-like streams, diving into Bible reading plans from YouVersion and studying them deeply before and during every stream. She then met her first Christian streamer friend, SuperShadow. Meeting him was a huge moment and she eventually found multiple communities; GMA, GodSquad Church, Life.Church Gaming, TheWay_TV, CrimsonConquerer, and so many more, who were on similar missions to the one God has set up for GG.
HOW WE BEGAN
While the stream style evolved to different themes each day, lightening the mood and intensity, and a small community began to form. There was a need to figure out how not to get lost in the gaming world but still enjoy the games, so an ESO guild called Our Morning Song was formed and with this the God’s Gamers community was born and our mission statement was made clear.
It has been incredible to see how God has blessed this community. We are now based out of Discord where gamers from any platform or game can centralize, hang out, find non-toxic groups, self-promote, and learn and grow together. We still have our ESO guild, and now have a weekly Bible study blog, our website that is growing in resources all the time, a “Looking for Christian Gamer” (LFCG) section where other communities, ministries and gamers can promote themselves and their content, a Playlist Project full of various genres of Christian music, a forum for IRL discussions, and we are listening for God’s direction all the time. We have fruitful, loving conversations about touchy topics, faith, questions, controversies, games, and real life.
As a Christian it can be so easy to feel like the only mission that matters is to bring people into relationship with Christ. This is a vital and incredible mission, but something I’ve asked myself for a long time is...what about current Christians? Are we left to fend for ourselves? When I came to Christ it sort of felt like all of a sudden I shouldn’t need help or support anymore, I should have all the answers and go out and bring other people to Christ now. What we are not told nearly enough is that believers need to support each other as well. We were designed to be in community with each other. If we are not working on our own spiritual health and understanding, strengthening our own relationship with Christ, how can we expect to know how to help others come to Him? God placed God’s Gamers in a position to be a support for current believers. We focus on being a safe place for those of-faith to come together and tackle the difficulties of mixing our faith with the gaming world. We welcome any and all who seek a loving, family-friendly, non-toxic gaming community but our primary focus is to support other believers in this journey.
What started as one person streaming in the wrong category on Twitch alone for hours every week is now a thriving community full of loving people who share the mission and desire to do what we love in a way honoring unto God.
