You are called to be a part of what God is doing across the earth. Will you play your role? Missionary organizations like Global Ministries Foundation (GMF) are vehicles to help believers combine their efforts as one Church to share the Gospel with every man, woman, and child.
Global Ministries Foundation is touching the globe by combining the efforts of individuals and churches to minister to those in need. Originally known as the Richard L. Hamlet Evangelism Association, GMF was established in 2003 for the purpose of evangelism and Gospel outreach ministry. It has since expanded and provides a covering for over 40 outreach, church planting, and discipleship ministries.
Global Ministries Foundation believes in holistic ministry. The very nature of taking a holistic approach to something is looking at the big picture. For example, when GMF hosts an evangelism festival for the purpose of sharing the Gospel they intentionally include free food or social services to meet the needs of the people. This practice is founded in the belief that before meeting a spiritual need it is important to meet a physical need.
GMF believes the workplace is a mission field. Religion has created an imaginary dividing line between that which is spiritual and that which is secular. However, Romans 8:11 teaches us that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives inside of us. The Global Ministries Foundation team believes that the workplace is a mission field that opens the door for the Gospel to reach many that would never step foot inside a Church.
This mindset truly embraces Jesus’ commission to “go” and to be “fishers of men”. This revivalist mindset empowers all believers to be in full-time ministry. Wherever we go, all the time, there God is. Therefore, business and entertainment environments become opportunities to see God move and touch lives allowing the Kingdom to be established beyond the four walls of a church.

Global Ministries Foundation believes the Gospel is for everyone. Jesus’ life examplifies that the Gospel is for every man, woman, and child of every race, age, and ethnicity. Jesus’ ministry was not exclusive and GMF lives this out through their belief that business is a mission, ministry belongs in the marketplace, and by providing the Stephen Olford Center for retreat and intensive leadership training.
What you can do to help. Pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 reminds us to “pray continually” and 2 Chronicles 7:14 promises that “if My people…will humble themselves and pray and seek My face…I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” In order for Global Ministries Foundation to accomplish their mission to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus, they need our prayers. Pray for open doors for the Gospel. Pray for favor. Pray for freedom. Pray for provision. Pray for salvations.
Give. Proverbs 11:25 promises, “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” Ministries like Global Ministries Foundation are transforming lives across the world with the Gospel. You may not be able to travel across the globe but have a passion to reach the nations with the good news of Jesus Christ. Reach the nations by supporting missions wherever you can.
Engage. You can become a part of the Global Ministries Foundation community through their blogs, ministry marketplace, evangelism festivals, and connection on social media.
Revival happens through YOU. Jesus commissioned us in Matthew 28:18-19 saying, “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in Heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
This commission was to each one of us. If you are reading this, you have been called, by Jesus Himself, to go make disciples of all nations. Revival depends on you!
