Missionary Opportunities

MISSIONARY OPPORTUNITIES ON GMI FIELDS

To inquire about any of these opportunities, click HERE.

General:
    • In addition to the specific needs we have listed below, we would ask you to pray that God would simply raise up missionaries to meet needs or expand works on existing and new fields which we have not even considered or thought of or we may not even know about yet.
Mozambique:
    • GMI missionaries Kennedy and Sofia Simtowe are returning to Mozambique in 2017 to continue to facilitate the process of church registration and to seek approval of their work permits. There are already a handful of churches in that country associated with the ministry of GMI organizing themselves into a national church structure. Kennedy’s emphasis will be church planting and evangelism. We need missionaries who can come alongside the churches and believers in Mozambique in order to better equip and provide further education for the pastors and church leaders. This would be similar to the ministry in Malawi, where GMI missionary Bill Vinton and GMI Partners Joseph Asong and Eric Mango are providing theological education for pastors and church leaders to edify the churches already established in this field.
Nicaragua:
    • Nicaragua became one of GMI’s fields early in 2014 when GMI missionaries, Jeff and Sally Roth, along with GMI Associate Missionaries, Emiliano and Raquel Seravalli, moved there to begin their ministries. Each week around 100 adults, youth, and children pass through Emiliano and Raquel’s home in the town of Nagarote for various Bible studies, worship services, clubs, and discipleship groups. Jeff and Sally took survey trips to the region in and around Matagalpa and have begun a new ministry in that area with the goal of planting churches. They have been joined by GMI missionaries Brett and Debby Chapman who host weekly Bible studies in their home.With two ministry sites, we need to increase our missionary force. We would like to see additional missionaries or missionary families with a desire to evangelize, disciple, and establish local churches work with our Nicaragua team in Nagarote or Matagalpa.
  • Paraguay:
    • Paraguay, located between GMI’S field of Bolivia and our affiliated field of Uruguay, is our newest field opened in June 2015, when GMI missionaries Alex and Deltha Gulart moved to Ciudad del Este to begin their evangelism and teaching ministry. We are looking for even more teammates to come alongside and complement them and GMI missionaries Jerry and Sandi Bomers as we strive to plant churches in Paraguay. We are looking for individuals with a heart to disciple new believers and help establish them into local churches. The goal of the ministry in Paraguay is to plant churches in Ciudad del Este, throughout the rest of the country, and even into neighboring Argentina and Brazil.
    Puerto Rico:
    • GMI is committed to working with established churches and ministries in Puerto Rico which share our common beliefs and our desire to evangelize, plant churches, and disciple future leaders in the Body of Christ. Because of this commitment, GMI is actively looking for energetic and motivated missionaries to come alongside affiliated churches and ministries on the island to further facilitate ministry efforts in such areas as: evangelism, youth ministry and outreach, theological training, development of methods for effective church planting, and practical training of Puerto Rican workers in the Body of Christ who will serve both in Puerto Rico and in other parts of the world as fellow missionaries. Understanding that finding just one person to meet all of these needs would be difficult, we would enjoy talking to anyone who is interested in any one or more of these areas of ministry.
    Tanzania:
    • The Grace Church of Tanzania desires a missionary to work with and provide guidance to its education ministry. Education is an important part of Tanzanian culture and is part of bringing sustainability to the Grace Church of Tanzania. To develop this important, Christ-centered ministry which affects the lives of so many students and adults, the church in Tanzania is looking for people who speak English to volunteer as teachers at Neno Secondary School and at Grace College vocational education center. These are positions that can be filled by individuals or couples, working age or retirees, preferably with a bachelor’s degree or equivalent life experience. A sense of adventure and a desire to learn about another culture, along with a strong Christian commitment, will help you be successful in this position. Opportunities are available for short-term commitments of 3 months, 6 months, or 1 year with long-term opportunities of 2 years or more.
    • Grace Community Development & Education (GCDE) is a Tanzanian non-profit organization partnering with GMI in Tanzania. GCDE is looking for missionaries or volunteers to work alongside Tanzania counterparts bringing small business training and/or agricultural training to people in the southwestern highlands of Tanzania. These positions can be tailored to the volunteer’s strengths. A strong Christian commitment is essential and some background in business, agriculture or education is helpful in providing the mentoring and training that impacts people’s lives through this ministry. Opportunities are available for short-term commitments of 3 months, 6 months, or 1 year with long-term opportunities of 2 years or more.
    Zambia:
    • The GMI ministry in Zambia needs missionaries to mentor and encourage pastors both in their practical, day-to-day ministry responsibilities and to help further their understanding of God’s Word and His grace. To help meet this need, GMI’s goal is to implement a regional Bible school program (already under development) which will be run by the Grace Church of Zambia.
