nl3-6.jpgBoard of Directors keeps GMI on Track

The GMI Board of Directors is responsible for directing and monitoring all aspects of GMI's organizational life and ministry. They make sure we accomplish the right goals, making a strong positive difference in the lives of church and mission leaders around the world. And they ensure that in the process we do everything within carefully articulated spiritual, ethical, legal and financial boundaries. In short, they make sure we stay on track.


The Board consists of godly men and women committed to GMI and to the fulfillment of God's mission in the world. They represent a healthy mix of professionals with both ministry (missions, research, mapping, technology) expertise and corporate (management, fundraising, accounting, legal) expertise. They bring tremendous wisdom to the leadership of GMI.
