Strategic Alliances in Nigeria, Korea, India

In seeking to better fulfill our global mission, GMI is pursuing strategic alliances with like-minded ministries in key locations around the world. These indigenous agencies help give their national audiences better access to vital information through mission research, digital publishing and/or mapping. This fall and winter GMI focused on the further development of two of these partnerships.

The first is CAPRO, a Nigerian sending agency with some 350 missionaries throughout Africa. Working together with the Nigerian Evangelical Mission Association (NEMA), CAPRO is the country's leading mission research and mobilization agency. In September, GMI brought Rev. Timothy Olonade, director of CAPRO Media and Mobilization, to Colorado Springs for a month of learning and planning together. Then in November, two GMI leaders traveled to Nigeria to help lead a week-long training workshop hosted by CAPRO to train Nigerian leaders in mission research, mapping and digital publishing.

The second is the Korea Research Institute for Mission, directed by Dr. Steve Moon. KRIM specializes in strategic research for Korean missionaries around the world. Having led a mapping training seminar hosted by KRIM in February 1999, GMI leaders return to Seoul in December 1999 to lead an "applied research training" seminar and a workshop on "missions in the information age."

GMI is also in the early stages of developing strategic alliances with two ministries in India: Joshua Vision India (The KING Center) directed by Dr. B.E. Vijayam, and North India Harvest Network whose research director is Joel David. These ministries represent leading church and people group research efforts in South India and North India respectively.
