Once upon a time international migrants had to completely leave behind their homeland in order to build a life in a new world. Today international migrants can stay connected to home even while embracing a new society an ocean away. We live in a world that is more mobile than ever before, and we live in a world that is more globally connected than ever before. In the first four years in the ministry of Global City Mission, spiritual friendships in global cities has led to gospel-sharing conversations back to 14 different countries. By engaging global cities, ministry can be both local and global at the same time. Watch the videos in this newsletter. and hear about ministry at the global crossroads.
Sharing faith at global crossroads
The New Mission Field
Global cities are a strategic mission field. They are gateway cities for people arriving from across the globe. These global crossroads represent links to nations around the world through the natural relationships and movement taking place in our global society. Cities are also centers of culture and cultural change. If we want to impact our society, we begin in cities, and if we hope to impact the world, the great challenge for the contemporary church is to reach global cities.

Meeting the Challenge
In Global City Mission, we consider ourselves a pioneering ministry, not because we are navigating an open wilderness. Rather we are working to discover pathways for the gospel in global cities -- an emerging mission field of the 21st century.

Give financially. Invite us to train in your church. Help us advance the ministry. Want to join the team? We'd love to hear from you.
