2001 ANNUAL REPORT
GMI is a non-profit corporation dedicated to furthering the cause of world evangelization.
To produce and present world-class research that fuels emerging mission movements and leaders.
The board of directors and staff
of GMI are deeply committed to evangelical Christian faith and
life. We subscribe to the National
Association of Evangelicals’ doctrinal statement and to the Lausanne
Covenant. GMI staff members serve as faith missionaries supported
by churches and individuals.
Our highest priority is serving evangelical mission leaders in the Two-Thirds World.
We stand amazed!
"Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.
Then he gave them to his disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.
They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish.
The number of the men who had eaten was five thousand” (Mark 6:41-44).
As we brought ourselves and our ministries to Jesus this year, they seemed so inadequate.
Yet we look back now with amazement at how the Lord multiplied these resources to satisfy the hunger of thousands
of church and missions leaders around the world for strategic information and insight.
God used our efforts to create a handful of missions information
CD-ROMs—Operation World, Operation
China, PeoplesFile, The
World of Islam, Global Ministry
Mapping System, and The
Wisdom of African Proverbs, along with a couple of research
training ministries—in ways far beyond our expectations.
Praise be to God!
We are grateful
GMI is grateful to God for our faithful supporters. We rely upon the gifts and
prayers of those who believe that the right information in the right hands at the right
time can make all the difference in the world.
We praise God for long-term and short-term volunteers, for the
new staff He brought us this year, and for a special
team of technical specialists who made possible the Operation
World CD-ROM and website
We could not carry out our international ministry without the strategic alliances we enjoy with sister ministries around the world.
Our special thanks to partners in Korea, Singapore, India, Nigeria, and Brazil.
We are enjoying God’s provision of a new office building
on the northern edge of Colorado Springs. You are always welcome
to stop in for a visit.
