Looking around the world, there are many kinds of ministries believers dedicated to sharing God’s grace can do alongside GMI on our established and even potentially new fields. GMI is praying for missionaries from a wide range of backgrounds, ministry abilities, talents, and passions to serve on our existing or new fields to help GMI and the local believers with whom we work evangelize, plant churches, disciple and train others, and otherwise share God’s love in ways we have not yet considered. We want to talk to these potential missionary candidates who have a passion for ministry and are committed to making Christ known throughout the world.
In Bolivia the new Bible training institute (Centro Bíblico de la Gracia) has been up and running since January 2018. Bolivia is an established field with churches located in and around the cities of Santa Cruz, Cochabamba, and La Paz. We are looking for more missionaries who will come alongside our current GMI missionary team and the Bolivian leadership to teach the Bible, theology, and ministry skills as we prepare godly pastors, leaders, and missionaries to expand the ministry to other regions of Bolivia and to neighboring countries. Not only would a new missionary join a team of Bolivians and other GMI missionaries in Bolivia, but they would also be part of the greater GMI missionary family in South America with the goal of reaching the rest of the continent with the gospel of grace.
As Grace Ministries International missionaries Tom and Michelle Sanchez seek to plant the first church affiliated with GMI in Burundi, they need fellow missionaries to come alongside them to teach, disciple, and mentor new believers in their relationship with the Lord and to lead by example through a life of grace. They also need missionaries with preaching and/or teaching skills who have a strong working knowledge of dispensational theology, as well as missionaries to help establish new believers in other outreach ministries such as evangelism, church leadership, and prison ministry. Method and Omelina Mwendapole, new missionaries with GMI, will be joining Tom and Michelle in Burundi in the middle of 2020 to start the ministries in that country.
- GMI missionaries Kennedy and Sofia Simtowe are now living in Mozambique conducting seminars, meeting with church leaders, and sharing the gospel which makes this our newest GMI field as we pursue our goal set with Vision 2023 of eight new fields. The church has been registered with the government and they are making contacts and identifying leaders and pastors with whom they will work. Kennedy’s emphasis will be church planting and evangelism. GMI missionaries Givemore and Sylvia Nyakambiri and their family will soon be joining the Simtowes in Mozambique after spending time serving with our team in Malawi. We need more missionaries who can come alongside the churches and believers in Mozambique in order to better equip and provide further biblical and practical ministry education for pastors and church leaders.
The GMI ministry in Nicaragua is focused on the area near the town of Nagarote where GMI missionaries Emiliano and Raquel Seravalli, as well as Lily Ortega, are serving just 45 minutes north of the capital, Managua. Matt and April Sykes will be joining the Nicaragua team soon. At the GMI Board meeting in June Aaron Cordero from Costa Rica was accepted as a new missionary candidate for Nicaragua so he will be raising his support to get to Nicaragua later this year. The team has been developing a piece of property which is now the home of their church, Bible school, and ministry outreach. They need others to serve alongside them working with children, youth, and adults in their teaching and discipleship ministry even as they look to eventually expand the work beyond Nagarote into other parts of the country.
Our missionary team in Panama is focused on the initial steps of planting a first church on this new field. Because of this, we are focused on outreach, evangelism, building relationships, and discipleship. As relationships grow and the process of discipleship takes root, we want to develop Panamanian leaders to reach as many people as possible in and around the Chiriquí Province and then throughout the country. We are looking for even more missionaries to come alongside and complement our GMI missionary team as we strive to plant our first of many churches in Panama. We are looking for individuals with a heart for outreach and evangelism, building relationships, and discipling new believers in order to form and develop future leaders.
In 2017, our GMI missionary team planted its first church in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, which sits on the border with Brazil and Argentina. We are looking for even more missionaries to come alongside and complement our GMI missionary team as we strive to plant even more churches throughout the rest of the country, and even into neighboring Argentina and Brazil. We are looking for individuals with a heart to disciple new believers, build relationships, evangelize, and help establish believers into local churches.
GMI is committed to working with established churches and ministries in Puerto Rico which share our common vision 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.
The leadership of the Grace Church in Zambia has a vision to plant more churches and to build up leaders within their churches to further grow the ministry there. GMI is looking for 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, one of GMI’s goals is to implement a regional Bible school program (already under development) which will be run by the Grace Church of Zambia. The success of such a program may grow into a theological training institute for both Zambia and for other African countries in the region.
