G1 Fourways is part of the Advance Movement of churches.
Advance is a global movement of churches partnering together to advance the Gospel through planting and strengthening churches. The name Advance is a practical way of describing our partnership, and expresses our primary purpose of taking new ground for the Gospel in cities and nations.

New Testament partnership seemed to function around four distinctives: Similar Doctrine, Shared Mission, Genuine Relationship and Recognized Leadership. When churches and leaders partner together in this way, it enables the Gospel to advance deeper and wider.

In addition to leading G1Fourways, Stephen Jack also co-ordinates the Gauteng Hub of Advance churches.

In January 2017, G1Fourways planted a new congregation into Midrand. This is part of our vision to see 100s of churches of 100s being planted into the urban, suburban and peri-urban areas of Gauteng. Jac & Megan Adamo, who lead the team, have started with a group of 30 adults and 20 kids and hope to see many Midranders from all walks of life coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus through the church’s loving and intentional engagement with the community. Check out for more info about the ministry of Godfirst Church Midrand.


G1 Fourways supports The Philile Foundation.

Philile is a non-profit organization founded by GodFirst that exists to transform the lives of children and disadvantaged communities in South Africa. It aims to run a full range of initiatives with in-depth focus on early childhood development. Philile (pea-lee-leh) means ‘I am alive’.
